evidence of past life at Chaco Culture Canyon extend from the
ruins of the ancient Ancestral Puebloan people that built their
great houses, roads, and kivas there, to the 75 millioin year
old fossils of even more ancient marine life that are found
in the rocks and mesas that form the canyon. They were once
part of the ocean floor millions of years ago.
The great house
ruins of Chaco Canyon have monikers that are as interesting
as their history, with names like: Pueblo Bonito, Chetro Ketl,
Kin Kletso, Hungo Pavi, and Una Vida.
