Distribution Analysis of Archaeological Ceramics on the "Malpaís de Tacámbaro Site", La Garita Sector, Michoacán, México
This is an abstract from the "Regional and Intensive Site Survey: Case Studies from Mesoamerica" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
In this paper we will present the results of the geostatistical analysis of the ceramics recovered during the archaeological prospecting works at Malpaís de Tacámbaro site in the La Garita sector. This is a big settlement located on top of a volcanic flow in the municipality of Tacámbaro, the south central of Michoacán. The goal of this study is to identify the characteristics of occupations and the use of space at this part of the site. The vast majority of materials belong to the early Urichu (900-1000 / 1100) and late Urichu (1000 / 1100-1350) phases, so we will present as well a general overview of the distribution of the ceramic materials of this period recovered in the region of the Balsas river Basin, during the works of the Proyecto Arqueología y Paisaje en el Área Centro Sur de Michoacán (PAPACSUM) from 2014 to 2018.
