The rock homes were common of the Mesa Verde, while the Great Houses were the typical Chacoan Anasazi. The pipelines and underground spaces were also the most common architectural functions in the Pueblo de Kiven and in many other locations in Mexico. Settlements from this period were scattered throughout the canyons and mesas of southern Utah. The houses were good - constructed pit structures consisting of hogan - like superstructures constructed knee to hip deep in the pit. These structures were reached by wooden ladders and were usually multi-storey and grouped along gorges and cliffs. Around 700 AD, the first evidence of a large-scale settlement of the Anasazi in southern Utah appeared in the kind of big common pit structures.
