The Middle Balsas region of southeastern Michoacán contains a wealth of densely concentrated archaeological sites, but remains severely understudied. The chapter first summarizes the limited previous archaeological research in the region. It then presents and discusses preliminary results of ongoing regional investigations. Analyzing ceramic, architectural, and lithic evidence derived from survey and excavation at 59 sites in the Chigüero dam area, the authors propose a regional ceramic sequence and occupational chronology that spans the Late Formative to Postclassic periods (based on archaeomagnetic and radiocarbon dating). The chapter concludes with a summary and brief discussion of how this new data advances scholarly understanding of over 1,500 years of Pre-Hispanic history in the Middle Balsas region of southeastern Michoacán.

Keywords:   Michoacán, Middle Balsas region, Chigüero dam area, Late Formative, Postclassic, Regional ceramic sequence, Archaeomagnetic and radiocarbon dating
