Title: Architecture of Chaco Canyon, New Mexico
From the Publisher:
The structures of Chaco Canyon, built by native peoples between AD 850 and 1130, are among the most compelling ancient monuments on earth. Recognized as a World Heritage Site, these magnificent ruins are consistently featured in scholarly books and popular media. Yet, like Chaco itself, these building are anomalous in southwestern archaeology and much debated.
The chapters in this volume focus on Chaco Great Houses and consider three overlapping themes: study of technology and building types, analyses of architectural change, and readings of the built environment. To aid reconsideration there are over 150 maps, floor plans, elevations, and photos, including a number of color illustrations.
