Teopancazco is a neighborhood center at Teotihuacan. It was excavated in the framework of the project Teopancazco "Teotihuacan. Elite y Gobierno" directed by Linda R. Manzanilla between 1997 and 2005). Samples from the plastered floors of the compound have been analysed at the Laboratorio de Prospección Arqueológica of the UNAM (Mexico) in order to understand the chemical enrichments of floors and the spatial distribution of activities.

We show here the results of the analyses of the Xolalpan phase of the compound, integrating the information coming from the residue analysis and other archaeological evidence at the site, in order to provide an hypothetical reconstruction of the use of space.
