Ancient Wisdom: The Anasazi Sun Dagger

The loss of the sun dagger prompted the World Monuments Fund in 1996 to put Chaco Canyon, now called the ChACO Culture National Historic Park, on the list of "most threatened monuments. " The canyon is home to more than 1,000 historical sites and more than 1.Ancient Wisdom: Anasazi Sun Dagger 43037152765.jpg 5 million artifacts, making it the largest archaeological site of its kind in the United States today. The nine big homes, the biggest of which was 5 storeys high and inhabited, could have accommodated up to 10,000 individuals at a time. A fascinating natural structure called Fajada Butte stands at the top of a steep hill and increases practically 120 meters above the desert floor in a remote area of ancient Anasazi area referred to as Chaco Canyon. On a narrow rocky outcrop on the hill is a sacred website of Native Americans called Sun Dagger, which countless years ago revealed the shifting seasons to ancient astronomers. Given that the gorge was abandoned over 700 years ago for unidentified factors, it has actually remained hidden from the public.

Considering that the closest source of cocoa at that time was Puleo Bonito, about 1,000 miles north of Chaco Canyon, the findings suggest that cocoa traveled an unbelievable length to the north. The beans of the native cocoa plant are used for a frothy part, and the delicacy of the cocoa takes a trip fars away and is exchanged between Maya and Pueblo. Given that cocoa is not cultivated in the tropics, the reality that there was substantial trade in between these remote societies indicates, according to the lead scientist, that it was not just traded, however also widely travelled. The recognized chemical signatures of cocoa have actually been examined to expand the understanding of the relationship in between ancient Mayan and Pueblo cultures and the modern-day world. Washburn studied 75 pots with the aid of coworkers from the University of California, San Diego, the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico (NIAH), the U.S. Geological Study (USGS) and other institutions. Previous studies have brought cocoa into what is now the United States, however this newest research study reveals that usage spread throughout the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Building on the discovery in Chaco Canyon, Crown will provide the results of a new research study by Washburn and associates from the University of California, San Diego that discovers the chemical signatures of cocoa in ancient Mayan ceramics from Mexico's ancient Pueblo cultures.
