Overview

Since Noble put together New Light on Chaco Canyon in 1984, little basic research has taken place on what became known as "the Chaco phenomenon." However, as the author and photographer points out, there's been plenty of analysis, comparison, interpretation, and debate about the people of the Chaco Canyon and their place in the wider world of archaeology. His updated collection of essays, photographs, maps, and site plans from archaeologists, historians, and Native American thinkers covers topics including the rise of early greathouses, the structure of agricultural life for the Chaco people, their use of sacred geography and astronomy, and indigenous knowledge about Chaco from the perspective of the Hopi, Tewa, and Navajo peoples.
