Chaco Canyon's Pueblo Bonito

Around the Great House of Chaco Canyon stretches the Pueblo Bonito, the largest of its kind in the United States and among the world's. These buildings were integrated in a landscape surrounded by sacred mountains, mesas and shrines that still have a deep spiritual significance for their Indian descendants. The Pueblo Bonito was the biggest of the 3 significant settlements of the Pueblo group that resided in the Chaco Canyon during what archaeologists call the "Bonito Stage. " In the 1050s it was on the edge of becoming the most essential settlement in the history of New Mexico and the U.S.A.. In the 10th century, throughout what archaeologists call the "Bonitos stage," more than 1,000 people lived here, the majority of them belonging to the United States. The majority of the spaces in the Pueblo Bonito were translated as houses for prolonged households and clans. This suggests to archaeologists that there was a large number of houses in addition to a vast array of spiritual and cultural activities.
