Multiple doorways at Pueblo Bonito

Doorways and beam holes at the ruins of Pueblo Bonito, Chaco Canyon, New Mexico

Small doorways connect a series of rooms in Pueblo Bonito. The size of the doors were determined by the size of the Chacoan people, which was small, compared to most modern humans. The ruins, according to Wikipedia, may have once had as many as 800 rooms. The configuration of Pueblo Bonito and its associated petroglyphs reflect a clear understanding of the lunar and solar cycles which affected crops, rituals, and the type of shelter needed.
