Chapter 5 presents the results of surveys and excavations accomplished at El Chorro de Maíta initiated in 2006. These investigations refined the dimensions of te area over which the archaeological materials were dispersed, and study of the character of domestic contexts that surround the burial zone. The investigation of these areas and of the materials previously encountered there under the direction of José M. Guarch Delmonte, indicate the existence of mixed strata of indigenous and European materials located on top of strata with only indigenous materials, as well as a chronology of occupation for the site that extended from the 13th century up to the middle of the 16th century. Located and identified was a significant quantity of ceramic fragments of European origin concentrated in and near the cemetery. However, the presence of Spanish material or their indigenous management was moderate, reflecting continued local cultural patterns during the period of interaction with the Europeans.
