The site of a great Ancestral Pueblo center in the 11th and 12th centuries AD, the ruins in Chaco Canyon look like a city to some archaeologists, a ceremonial center to others. Chaco and the people who created its monumental great houses, extensive roads, and network of outlying settlements remain an enigma in American archaeology.Two decades after the latest and largest program of field research at Chaco, the National Park Service's Chaco Project from 1971 to 1982, the original researchers and other leading Chaco scholars convened to evaluate what they now know about Chaco in light of new theories and new data. Those meetings culminated in an advanced seminar at the School of American Research, where the Chaco Project itself was born in 1968. In this capstone volume, the contributors address central archaeological themes, including environment, organization of production, architecture, regional issues, and society and polity. They place Chaco in its time and in its region, considering what came before and after its heyday and its neighbors to the north and south, including Mesoamerica.

These results closely align with previous results on architectural wood, corn, and other key resources.

Walk the soil of Chaco Canyon and you see clay shards with every step - on mesas, in the river valleys and in ruins - to realize a whole civilization lived, worked and worshiped there almost 1000+ years ago. Stand in a kiva and be greatly humbled. Look at satellite imagery to see the "roads" that were traveled to and from the valleys. Understand the lunar and solar alignments of the many buildings and you begin to realize just how advanced Chaco Canyon was. We have very limited understanding of those that went before us.

Occasionally, archaeological jargon appears, but this particular book gives a comprehensive report on the Chaco Project which extended across nearly 20 years in the 1970s and 1980s and revolutionized American archaeology. It is the most thorough report I have seen on new finds at Chaco, and is a major contribution to our understanding of the Anasazi culture.
