Chupícuaro, an archaeological site, is located in the southeastern area of the Lerma River basin in West Mexico. Although not well known for their architecture, the people of Chupícuaro are very well-known for their ceramic tradition—and for conch shell trumpets. The existence in Chupícuaro of trumpets made from Caribbean conch shells attests to widespread trade networks.
