Archaeology is the way to understand our most ancient past. Trough the study of material remains, we can understand how people from one civilization or another lived. Materials are the object of study for the archaeologist; in the working places of archaeologists, it is common to find a lot of pottery shreds, litchis objects, clay figurines, and more artefacts that speak about the past. In this poster, we are going to talk about an objet, one that it is so important that no other objects would have any relevance if we didn’t consider it. We are talking about architecture. Before creating any objects, man create the space where they are going to be used, and that space is limited by surrounding walls; in this sense, we understand the architecture as the creations of volume to manipulate the space. Man develops all activities around the spaces provided by the architecture, and there is where we found many of the objects that we later analyze in the laboratory. In the actual poster, I will explain the excavations techniques that we used at Gualupita Morelos, a Preclassic site, and the information recovered from a household.
