Three ancient populations from Middle America have been studied: a 500–675 YBP sample of Post-Classic Aztec from Tlatelolco, Mexico, a 480–1400 YBP Maya sample from Xcaret, Mexico and a 750–1300 YBP Maya sample from Copán, Honduras. The two ancient Mexican populations exhibit a high frequency of haplogroup A, like many modern Middle American populations, but the ancient Maya population from Copán belongs primarily to haplogroup C.
