Honduras Tips - - ARQUEOLOGÍA * ARCHAEOLOGY -

Re­ci­be su nom­bre por ha­ber si­do cons­trui­do en un lu­gar de ras­tro­jos (ma­le­za den­sa), que sir­vió a los ma­yas para cu­brir­se de los enemi­gos, su nom­bre an­ti­guo no se co­no­ce, pe­ro se ha re­cons­trui­do co­mo K’an Koj Witz que sig­ni­fi­ca “Ce­rro del Pu­ma Pre­cio­so”. Aun­que la era de edi­fi­cios mo­nu­men­ta­les es­cul­tó­ri­cos de Ras­tro­jón da­ta de 700 d.c. el área fue ocu­pa­da des­de mu­cho an­tes del es­ta­ble­ci­mien­to de la di­nas­tía K’inch Yax K’uk’ Mo’ en 425 d.c. y mu­cho más tar­de des­pués de su co­lap­so el 822 d.c. Eso ha­ce de es­te lu­gar un si­tio úni­co en el Va­lle de Co­pán.

It gets its na­me be­cau­se it was built in a pla­ce of dense un­der­growth, which ser­ved the Ma­yans to co­ver them­sel­ves from the enemies, its an­cient na­me is not known, but has been re­cons­truc­ted as K’an Koj Witz which means “Moun­tain of the Pre­cious Pu­ma “. Alt­hough the era of mo­nu­men­tal scul­ptu­ral buil­dings of “Ras­tro­jon” da­tes from 700 AC. the area was oc­cu­pied long be­fo­re the es­ta­blish­ment of the K’inch Yax K’uk ‘Mo’ dy­nasty in 425 AC. and much la­ter af­ter its co­llap­se in 822 AC. That ma­kes this pla­ce a uni­que pla­ce in the Co­pán Va­lley.
