Chaco Culture National Historic Park, New Mexico

Archeologists believe the Chacoan Anasazi Indians first began building on this site in 828 A.D.  Like a large apartment block (although really a village), the pueblo originally rose four to five stories in parts.  Its population may have reached as many as one thousand people at one time.  Estimates peg the number of rooms at around eight hundred, although the Anasazi probably only occupied six hundred of these at any one time.  It is the largest Anasazi building excavated to date.  Photograph taken in 1991 by Howard J. Partridge.
