Ka'kabish is an ancient Maya city located in North-Central Belize. Settled around 800 BC, the city survived three political upheavals, before finally ceasing to exist around AD 1500. Throughout its 2,300-year life-span, Ka'kabish enjoyed a prosperous existence, and participating in long-distance trade networks that brought coveted materials such as jade and copper to the site. Currently, the site of Ka'kabish forms the bases for KARP, the Ka'kabish Archaeological Research Project, under the direction of Dr. Helen Haines, from Trent University. It also hosts researchers studying bats and other animal species. Although the site is currently private property, visitors are welcome during May and June when excavations are in progress. We are in the process of purchasing the site and having it incorporated into the Belize Archaeological Parks system.
