In 2013 a pyramid of 13 steps, 20 complete human burials and 15 pieces of clay, basalt and copper ceramics were discovered in Malpaís Prieto, an area that is part of 400 archaeological sites located in the municipality of Zacapu, Michoacán, and where it does 700 years ago the uacusecha culture was established, a group considered to be the precursor that gave rise to the development of the Tarascan kingdom.

This is indicated by the first archaeological finds and the exploration work on the uacusecha culture that archaeologists from the Center for Mexican and Central American Studies (CEMCA) have been carrying out for three years with the support of UNAM and INAH.
