Altun Ha is the name given ruins of an ancient Maya city in Belize, located in the Belize District about 30 miles (50 km) north of Belize City and about 6 miles (10 km) west of the shore of the Caribbean Sea. The site covers an area of about 5 miles (8 km) square. The ruins of the ancient structures had their stones reused for residential construction of the agricultural village of Rockstone Pond in modern times, but the ancient site did not come to the attention of archeologists until 1963.
Altun Ha was occupied for many centuries, from about B.C 900 to A.D. 1000. Most of the information of Altun Ha and at its largest was in the Classic Period from about A.D 400 to A.D. 900.
