Summary

Arqlgo. Pablo Sereno Uribe. INAH Guerrero.

The Chimalacatlán archaeological project has focused its research in the southern section of the state of Morelos. Initially, this archaeological site was excavated by the archaeologist Florencia Müller in 1943.

The first actions developed by the Chimalacatlan archaeological project centered on the conservation and restoration of the different buildings along the site, focusing on those buildings that were extremely damaged. Subsequently, several surveys were conducted with the objective to record all the important architectonical elements. During these surveys, there were many more archaeological sites located around Chimalacatlán.

Therefore, we think that it is imperative to extend the present study region to include the states of Morelos and Guerrero and to continue with surveys and excavations of the different sites established along the river Amacuzac. This river is the actual frontier between the states of Morelos and Guerrero. Accomplishing this will enable a greater understanding of an important and wider archaeological region.

That is why, in the poster we are going to present, the current results of the excavations of two sites located at the south of Morelos, very clouse to the state limit with Guerrero.
