Visit the incredible ancient homes of Chaco Canyon, New Mexico including the 800 room Pueblo Bonito and search for clues to the lives of their long-vanished builders.

Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, contains some of the earliest surviving dwellings in North America. Over 1,000 years ago Native Americans built sophisticated systems of housing in the canyon. The most elaborate of the nineteen towns was Pueblo Bonito.

Founded with a cluster of twenty rooms around the year 1000 AD, Pueblo Bonito grew over 150 years into a massive four-story complex with 800 rooms. Take an up-close look at Pueblo Bonito and the other Chaco Canyon towns.

Explore the mystery of the "kivas" sunken ritual rooms found in each Pueblo. Discover the clues that led archaeologists to believe that the society that built the pueblos had little social hierarchy. Hear the latest theories on how life was lived in these vast buildings and meet the men and women whose work is shedding new light on these mysterious structures and the fate of their builders.
