Description: Palenque represents the western regional variant of Classic Maya civilization . Although the earliest occupation of the site dates to about 100 BC , it becomes a major population center only at about 600 AD and all construction at the site has ceased by about 800 AD . The ruins now visible are the heavily restored remains of the ceremonial centre of a more extensive settlement bordered by agricultural fields .
