The Chaco Canyon was the center of a thriving culture, and the Chacao Culture National Historic Park, which maintains the remains of the ancient ChACO culture as well as the ruins of Hungo Pavi, lies about halfway between Farmington and Albuquerque. The piece de resistance of the park are the remarkable sandstone homes, but Pueblo Bonito as the center of the ancient world is a need to - see on your own. Due to the desert - like the environment - the location is best seen in late summer and early autumn, throughout the hottest time of the year and in winter. The gorge is a crucial place for the culture of the ancestors of Pueblik and includes a number of petroglyphs which are marked on its walls. There is a petroglyphic course that leads from the top of Gallo Wash to the bottom of the canyon. Finally, among the petroleum types on Gallos Wash are a couple of little specific niches and homes that were inhabited between 1150 and 1200 ADVERTISEMENT. It is thought that the architectural style embedded in the rock walls was affected by the populations of the north such as Mesa Verde. The kivas are keyholes - shaped and circular, suggesting a connection to the northern websites where they were common, and to Pueblik culture in basic.

Peoples, Architecture, Societies - Towers, Pueblos

Although much of the building and construction at these websites was in the usual Pueblo architectural types, consisting of kivas (towers) and pit houses, constraints and specific niches required a much denser population density. Not all people in the area lived in rocky residences, however numerous settled on the canyon edges and slopes as multi-family structures grew in size as the population swelled. Cliff houses in Mesa Verde reflect a growing local population, not only in Utah, however also in Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. Big, freestanding, apartment-like structures were also set up along the canyon and blackboard walls. These towns were built in sheltered specific niches facing the cliffs, with t-shaped doors and windows, but otherwise little bit different from the brick mud homes and towns that had been developed prior to. In these environments, the apartments typically included 2, three or even four floorings, which were built in stages, with the roofing system of the lower space working as a terrace for the rooms above. The tendency towards aggregation that was evident in the websites of Pueblo was reversed as individuals scattered throughout the country, from thousands of small stone homes to land of a thousand small stones and homes. The population was concentrated in larger communities, and numerous little villages and hamlets were deserted.
