“It was in the Terminal Classic when Chichén Itzá, by becoming a prominent metropolis in the northeast of present-day Yucatán, extended its influence over sites such as Kulubá, which, due to the data that exist of ceramic materials such as Chichén and obsidian from the same sources that supplied this Mayan city, archaeologists infer that Kuluba became an Itzá enclave ”.
