Plaza of the Royal Tombs, Nim Li Punit
One unusual feature of Nim Li Punit is the small collection of tombs built into the floor of the Plaza of the Royal Tombs, adjacent to the Plaza of the Stelae.
Three tombs have been discovered here, with the remains of eleven people who are all assumed to be members of the ruling family, which is thought to have had their residences on the plaza itself.
Various treasures were found in these tombs, including ceramics, carved stone, jade and stingray barbs, which were used in religious blood-letting rituals.
