Las Delicias - A Tempisque Period Cemetery

The archaeological site of Las Delicias is located in the Department of Managua, about 2 km from the shore of Lake Xolotlan. Chronologically it belongs to the Late Tempisque to Early Bagaces period (100 -500 CE). The site is located in a construction zone for a housing complex, and since 2008 salvage excavations have investigated the social dynamics of the inhabitants. Recent investigations have identified domestic and burial contexts, as well as kilns for ceramic manufacture.
