Los Guachimontones is the largest archaeological site in the Tequila Valleys of central Jalisco and among the most extensively studied sites in the region. Nonetheless, the site lacks an established ceramic sequence, complicating efforts to understand the architectural and habitational chronology at the paramount site of the Teuchitlán tradition. This chapter synthesizes data from over 20 years of survey and excavation, presenting the totality of evidence derived from radiocarbon dates, ceramics and their distribution, figure and figurine debris, burials and offerings, and stratigraphic pits. The chapter concludes by summarizing the results of the analyses to propose a much-needed model of the architectural stratigraphy and occupational history of Los Guachimontones.
