Excavations and mapping of the small site of Akte, located 7.2 km northwest of Motul de San José, near the confluence of the Rio Akte and the Rio K'ante't'u'ul, documented an extensive occupational history, seven stela monuments, and several features suggesting that the site played a complex role in regional sociopolitical interactions. This chapter by Suzanna C. Yorgey and Matthew D. Moriarty summarizes the results of the research, pointing to both site planning and ceramic differences and similarities between Akte and Motul, in order to contextualize the nature of the role of minor sites in the Motul de San José polity and on the larger Central Peten geopolitical scene.
