Archaeologists Uncover A Utah Connection To Comprehensive Chaco Canyon Road System

The heart of Chaco Canyon lies in the intermittent "Chaco Wash," which runs east - southeast to west - northwest along the San Juan River and after that north to south through the canyon.Archaeologists Uncover Utah Connection Comprehensive Chaco Canyon Road System 09913759188.jpg The north side of the canyon consists of towering sandstone cliffs topped by wide, slippery terraces. The south side is less dramatic, however the scale of the Chaco world is even higher, stretching as far as the San Juan River and the Rio Grande Valley. Large homes lie on the north and south sides as well as on the east and west sides. The 2,500-square-kilometer research study area lies in between the San Juan River and the Rio Grande Valley in the southern part of the Chaco Canyon area.

Pueblo Bonito, Chetro Ketl Chaco Research Study

Pueblo Bonito (Spanish for "gorgeous city") is one of the most well-known Chacoan houses in the Chaco Canyon region of Mexico, house to a few of the most famous Chacos of the Chaco Canyon. D-shaped big home is so large that the area of Pueblo Bonito is slightly smaller sized than that of Chetro Ketl. Although the spaces facing the square are primarily one-storey, it rises to four floors in the centre of the structure. Areas in a row are 2 or three floors high, producing a roofing system balcony that extends from the plaza to the back spaces. The big home can be up to four storeys high in some locations on the north side, and up to 6 storeys on the south side of Chetro Ketl.
