"Sun Dagger" Of Chaco Canyon

In the middle of ancient Anasazi - called Chaco Canyon - increases an enforcing natural structure called Fajada Butte. On a narrow rocky outcrop at the top of this mountain is a sacred website of the indigenous people, which got the name "Sun Dagger" and revealed the shifting seasons to the astronomers of An asanasazi thousands of years ago. Although the gorge was deserted more than 700 years ago for unknown reasons, the tricks of the dagger stay hidden to just a couple of. It discreetly marked the course of the seasons for many centuries, but lasted only 10 years before its discovery and was lost forever.

According to a group of archaeologists, a new analysis of remains at the site of one of The United States and Canada's crucial historical sites suggests that excavations at Chacao Canyon, which started in the late 19th century, began much earlier than formerly believed. In the early 1900s, thousands of artifacts were delivered back east, lots of to the United States, Mexico, and other parts of South America. The findings are released in the journal Procedures of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, a journal of the Theological Society of America. The macaws, the most distinctive species found in Chaco, were recorded as early as the end of the 19th century, according to the study. The birds are not native throughout the southwest and should have been imported from very far south, from Mexico. They have just been found in a couple of locations in our southwest, one of which is in Pueblo Bonito, and these few sites have a really restricted variety of macaws and just one macaw per square kilometer.
