RIVERO TORRES, Sonia. EL sitio arqueológico de Lagartero, Chiapas. LiminaR [online]. 2007, vol.5, n.1, pp.183-194. ISSN 2007-8900.

This article talks about the archaeological site of Lagartero, Chiapas. That means it includes a description of all the various islands that form it. These islands have different sizes, but the biggest one is the Limonar island, where I have been working. You can find here the ceremonial area of the site. Later I described the archaeological works made since 1990, where I did the first field work on the Limonar island and then periodically continued excavating. Later on I explained the relevant architectural aspects and archaeological founds in each field season (1993, 94, 95, 97, 99 and 2002) until to 2003, where I did the last part of the eighth field work. Supported by the archaeological data obtained in these field seasons we have a relative chronology of the site based on the ceramic typology and C14 analysis. We know about the language that was spoken in the area thanks to the research of the Historical Linguistic. The particular function of the site in its mayor apogee was due to its privileged location in the Lagartero marsh that means a lot of water and fertile soils. The people who inhabited Lagartero exploited both sources and caused a prosperity relected in the material production, lithic exchange and a particular architectural style.

Palabras llave : archaeological site of Lagartero; Chiapas; the archaeological work.
