Whereas operating at Mirador in the course of the 1965
season (Agrinier 1970), I made a brief in¬
vestigation of the close by web site of Miramar, ex¬
ploring the floor and making 5 try pits.
My goal used to be to make a initial eval¬
uation of the cultural and chronological posi¬

The destinations for the try out pits have been selected
for their strength ceramic stratigraphy, with
an purpose to keep away from different cultural gains,
such as masonry partitions, caches, and burials.
However, in the case of Pit 2, my intentions
were diverted; the mass burial I encountered
there occupied me for so much of the brief sea¬
son, from the heart of could to the first days
of June, 1965. different brief explorations I
made in 1973 and 1974 further a few extra
details.
