The Chaco Age|Pueblo Bonito

Around the Great House of Chaco Canyon stretches the Pueblo Bonito, the largest of its kind in the United States and among the world's. These buildings were built in a landscape surrounded by spiritual mountains, mesas and shrines that still have a deep spiritual significance for their Indian descendants. The Pueblo Bonito was the largest of the 3 major settlements of the Pueblo group that resided in the Chaco Canyon during what archaeologists call the "Bonito Phase.Chaco Age|Pueblo Bonito 0970216517.jpg " In the 1050s it was on the brink of becoming the most crucial settlement in the history of New Mexico and the U.S.A.. In the 10th century, during what archaeologists call the "Bonitos stage," more than 1,000 people lived here, most of them native to the United States. The majority of the spaces in the Pueblo Bonito were analyzed as homes for prolonged families and clans. This suggests to archaeologists that there was a large number of houses as well as a wide range of spiritual and cultural activities.
