What is fascinating about Tikal is that its story continues to change. Once thought to be the religious site and astronomical observatory of a peaceful tribe, archaeologists in the 1980s revealed that the Maya were actually a fierce and frequently warring people. In 2013, archaeologists discovered a significant frieze near Tikal that revealed the depth of the political struggle between Tikal and neighboring rulers of Kaanul, or the Snake Kingdom.

So, how do we resolve the presence and actions of Sherem in the Book of Mormon?

Not sure I'm following you here, subgenius. This temple was build around 700 AD, while Sherem was around 545 BC, about 1245 years difference. Plus, Guatemala is in Central America, whereas Nephi and Jacob were somewhere around Palmyra, New York, USA. Finally, there's evidence of the Tikal and Kaanul, but not of the Nephites or Lamanites.

Anyway, I couldn't make a connection between Sherem and this story of the Tikal.

Not sure.

How do we resolve that...
Quote:
Discoveries of Maya occupation at Cuello, Belize have been carbon dated to around 2600 BCE.[2][3] The people built monumental structures. The Maya calendar, which is based on the so-called Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, begins on a date equivalent to 11 August 3114 BC.

...against the timeline and narrative of the Book of Mormon (not to mention the entire Church chronology of Adam and the flood)?
