When Merle Greene Robertson and Khristaan Villela came to Old Chichen in June, 2000, they were expecting to rub a few new relief sculptures that archaeologist Peter Schmidt of the Chichen Itza Project had discovered. They remembered Old Chichen from previous visits as a comparatively minor and little-visited area of the site. This photograph shows the approach to the Initial Series Group in 1998. The dark area at the end of the path is the doorway of the Temple of the Phalli.
