Unearthing the Story of Tibes: New Looks at an Ancient Society
We also now know that the development of this ceremonial center happened gradually and not rapidly; most probably in stages involving the destruction of old structures, and the construction and re-construction of new ones, leading eventually to the spatial distribution of structures that we see at Tibes today. This suggests that the relations between groups may have changed through time, as well.
Despite these advances, there is still much work to be done. The information collected to date has helped develop new working hypotheses based on new premises. But, at the end of the day, it has helped us get closer to the real story of the rise and fall of the Ceremonial Center of Tibes.
