Chaco Canyon, Mexico

In the middle of ancient Anasazi - called Chaco Canyon - increases an imposing natural structure called Fajada Butte. On a narrow rocky outcrop at the top of this mountain is a spiritual site of the native people, which received the name "Sun Dagger" and exposed the changing seasons to the astronomers of the Anasazi thousands of years earlier. Although the gorge was abandoned more than 700 years ago for unidentified reasons, the tricks of the dagger stay covert to just a couple of. It discreetly marked the course of the seasons for many centuries, however lasted just ten years prior to its discovery and was lost forever.

Making Anasazi Pottery - Ceramics and Clay

Experimentation with geological clay started in the 6th century, but it was not till 2000 years later on that the production of ceramics followed. The technology was adjusted to produce the conditions for the advancement of the first industrial pottery in Europe and the Middle East in about 3,500 years.Making Anasazi Pottery - Ceramics Clay 7475736117009.jpg The earliest pottery found in the Puebla area is brownware, which appeared in a context that appears to have actually appeared in Mesoamerica as early as 2,000 years earlier. As soon as developed, ceramic production in the south and southwest continued to be influenced by style modifications in the northern parts of Mesoamerica, and these principles were transferred to the north in modified form. The Kachina cult, potentially of Mesoamerican origin, may have developed itself in the Puebla area, although relatively couple of Anasazi lived there at the time of the earliest evidence of its existence. Proof of the cult's existence can be discovered in depictions of "Kachinas," which appear in ceramics from the south and southwest of Mexico and from the north. Hence, there is no proof that the early potters of the Asazi were just influenced by potters working in the South, however rather by the cultural and cultural influences of their northern equivalents.
