In the thirteenth century, Genghis Khan invades China, the Fourth Crusade consumes Constantinople, the Maya center of Chichen Itza collapses, Cusco is established as the capital of the Inca Empire, and the great community centers of the Mesa Verde region experience a sudden decline.
Join us from May 21 to 26, 2017, for The Pueblo Word in A.D. 1200, an exploration of landscape, identity, and adaption during a tumultuous era in world history—the 1200s.
Visit the iconic archaeological sites of Chaco Canyon and Aztec Ruins to learn about tipping points and the rise and fall of communities through time. Enjoy a special tour of Crow Canyon's new excavation site, a large Chaco outlier, and discover the latest research in social identity, village formation, and the inextricable relationship between humans and their environment.
