Chaco Canyon was a central place in the Ancient Southwest. Here, in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, architects and masons constructed a dozen “great houses” made of formal masonry construction with as many as 650 rooms massed up to five stories high.
Research in recent years suggests that Chaco appears to have represented a form of regional organization that existed across much of the Colorado Plateau between A.D. 900 and 1200. This collection provides detailed analysis of the nature of Anasazi social organization.
This updated version includes a chapter “Chaco Update 2000” which addresses research on Chaco settlements since the original publication of this volume in 1992.
