Summary

The results of analysis of chemical residues are presented in a set of 2469 samples of archaeological ceramic artifacts: 434 foreign vessels (Kabata 2010), 452 samples of various types of local vessels (Pérez 2002, 2009), 480 comales (Terreros 2013), 470 pots, pans, 334 cazuleas, 140 braseros and 159 sahumadores. The containers correspond to the Late Classic and Epiclasic lakeside site occupation of Santa Cruz Atizapán, in Mexico State. Residues of protein, carbohydrates, fatty acids, phosphates and carbonates were identified following the protocols used by the Laboratory of Archaeological Survey of UNAM (Barba, Ortiz and Pecci 2013, Barba, Rodriguez and Córdoba 1991). The analyses were registered due to the chemical enrichment resulting from normal and recurring use.
