Chaco Canyon Road Network

The heart of Chaco Canyon lies in the intermittent "Chaco Wash," which runs east - southeast to west - northwest along the San Juan River and then north to south through the canyon. The north side of the canyon consists of towering sandstone cliffs topped by large, slippery balconies. The south side is less significant, however the scale of the Chaco world is even greater, stretching as far as the San Juan River and the Rio Grande Valley. Big houses lie on the north and south sides along with on the east and west sides. The 2,500-square-kilometer study area lies in between the San Juan River and the Rio Grande Valley in the southern part of the Chaco Canyon region.Pueblo Building Construction Chronology|About Anasazi 66990514305171652204.jpg

Pueblo Building And Construction Chronology|About Anasazi

The Spanish word implies "town," originated from the name pueblo, which the Spanish explorers called the home - like houses they found in the early 17th century. It was an ancient Indian culture that concentrated on the Anasazi, a group of people in northern New Mexico consisting of a couple of hundred to a hundred thousand individuals. The term is referred to by some as "Anasazis," although the term was not favoured by those who believed that the descendants of the cultural group were the native peoples and not their descendants. It is unclear what the reason for the group is, but it is understood that the Anasazis and individuals share some of the same religious beliefs.Sun Dagger's Tale: It? 1853532129.jpg

The Sun Dagger's Tale: How Did They Do It?

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 website of the native individuals, which got the name "Sun Dagger" and exposed the changing seasons to the astronomers of An asanasazi thousands of years back. Although the gorge was deserted more than 700 years ago for unknown reasons, the secrets of the dagger stay covert to just a couple of. It inconspicuously marked the course of the seasons for many centuries, however lasted only 10 years prior to its discovery and was lost permanently.
