C. 500 C.E.; ceramic; from El Perú-Wakà, Petén, Guatemala.

The site is now called "El Perú": it was formerly referred to as "Wakà."

In 378 C.E. in Wakà the first meeting between the Teotihuacani and the Maya took place.

Among archaeologists, this event is known as "La Entrada."

At the beginning of the classical period, Wakà was allied with Tikal, but Wakà later betrayed the alliance and sided with Calakmul.

In the late classical period Calakmul defeated Tikal, who later managed to regroup and defeat its rival in 732.

Wakà, ally of Calakmul, was destroyed a decade later.
