Chaco Canyon

Tuesday, 9th August 2005 by

Chaco Culture National Historical Park is in north-western New Mexico and was the heart of the ancestral Puebloan culture between AD 850 and 1250. During that time they built monumental “great houses” from the yellow-orange sandstone that permeates the region, the largest of which is Pueblo Bonita which had more than 600 rooms and was inhabited by about 1000 people. Just to the East is another such house, Chetro Ketl and even more to the west.
