This project conducts a preliminary investigation into the hilltop settlements of eastern Guerrero, Mexico. It provides a detailed discussion of excavations conducted at the site of Chiepetlan-Quimimiteopan with the goal of providing a basis of comparison for future archaeological work at hilltop sites in eastern Guerrero. Excavation results and specific artifact categories were examined in an effort to assess the function of the site and its placement in relation to other sites within eastern Guerrero and ultimately broader Mesoamerica. It was determined that the inhabitants of this hilltop site were not operating in isolation, but were interacting with other sites in the region, potentially as part of larger networks across multiple areas of Mesoamerica.
