The Mystery of Chaco Canyon examines the deep enigmas presented by the massive prehistoric remains found in Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico

After years of intensive research, Chaco Canyon, located in a desolate region of northwestern New Mexico, leaves us with more questions than answers. A unique feature in the construction of many of the pueblos is that they were aligned not only with the movements of the sun, but also the 18 1/2 year lunar cycle.

No other civilization is known to have accomplished this. Some 200 miles of straight roads 24- to 36-feet wide were built with raised beds, bridges, stairways and ramps. For the most part, these roads led to nowhere. For many years the theory prevailed that the “Chaco Phenomenon” existed as the distribution center for a large trading network. Colorful parrot feathers, copper bells and seashells from up to 3,000 miles away have been found in the ruins.

Huge pueblos, known as “Great Houses” are the distinguishing feature of a culture that flourished in this area starting around 850 AD and continued until 1250 AD. Ten massive structures, some four stories high, had approximately 3,000 rooms. Pueblo Bonito was the size of the Roman Coliseum

    Chaco Canyon – The mystery of the “…200 miles of straight roads 24- to 36-feet wide were built with raised beds, bridges, stairways and ramps… …[leading] to nowhere”, should not be much of a mystery to a scientific community that looks beyond the conventional constraints of church and state.

    The vast wilderness we call the American West was once an ocean. There are American Indian tribes that maintain a recollection of this in their histories. These archeologists really need to get out more often and look around the rest of the world.

    What they are actually seeing are not roads at all. They are however, seeing a series of docks, and piers within a series of ports. The sands have filled in the areas that were once dredged deep for ships.

    Doorways in the lower structures were filled in when the waters rose. Take a close look at the King Abdul Aziz Port at Dammam and commercial ports at in Saudi Arabia.

    You’ll see some of your answers there.

    Roads to ports makes much more sense.

    Were the Anasazi descended from the Anakim, also? -I wonder.
