Synopsis

National Geographic Investigates Ancient Pueblo Archaeology Unlocks the Secrets of America's Past by National Geographic Society

Ancient Pueblo brought to life as only National Geographic can bring it - with dramatic photography and lively narrative describing archaeological finds and what they teach us about the ancient world. The Ancient Pueblo were one of four major prehistoric archaeological traditions of the American Southwest. The Ancient Pueblo culture is perhaps best-known for the jacal, adobe and sandstone dwellings built along cliff walls. These villages were called pueblos by Mexican settlers. The Ancient Pueblo are also known for their unique style of pottery and for the many petroglyphs and pictographs they left behind. Ancient Pueblo People or Ancestral Puebloans are preferred terms for the cultural group of people often known as the Anasazi. What we know of the ancient pueblo civilizations is constantly evolving based on new finds and the ways experts interpret them. This book gives kids access to the latest information.
