Since 2003 the archaeological project of Chimalacatlán have research the south section of the state of Morelos, along the region known as the Huautla highlands. This archaeological site was excavated by Florencia Müller in 1943, who show to the academic community the importance of the area.

So the first activities of the Chimalacalan archaeological project focused on the conservation of various architectural structures of the site, focusing on those buildings that were extremely damage. Then we have conducted several surveys on the site with the objective of record all the architectonical elements of it. During this surveys we were able to locate many more site around Chimalacatlán.

Therefore we think that it is imperative to extend the study region between the states of Morelos and Guerrero, to continue with surveys and excavations of the different sites established all along the river Amacuzac, the actual frontier between Morelos and Guerrero. Doing so we will be able to understand archaeologically a wider region.

That is why the present poster aims to present the results of the work carried out in the South of the State of Morelos, which serve as a basis for the study of a wider region.
