Advances on the investigation of Chalchihuites culture

Part of: Society for American Archaeology 80th Annual Meeting, San Francisco, CA (2015)

A century ago, Manuel Gamio put on the map to archeology of Chalchihuites area, however, across time the research has been very sporadic and slow. It was Charles Kelley and his group of researchers at Southern Illinois University, who develop the largest study on the limits of the current states of Durango and Zacatecas. They show the great potential that this area kept for archaeological research. Today has been made a wide range of studies, but the dissemination of the results has not been the best. The goal of this symposium is to show a balance of research and perspectives, giving an updated view of Chalchihuites Culture.
