Road Trip to the Ancient Pueblos In Flagstaff, Arizona


© Allison Carlton 

Some of the most interesting archaeological sites I studied in Archaeology Theory and Method last semester was that of the Pueblos. The Pueblos constructed some of the most fascinating and complex building structures in history in my opinion.

The buildings were typically constructed out of stone walls and clay mortar with wooden support beams. Many pueblos were multi-level, forcing the residents to use ladders to reach the roofs where they could then enter the rooms through the ceilings.

Allison Bard from Traveling Bard is lucky enough to have direct access to this ancient world of multilevel homes and outbuildings. She recently took a self guided tour within Wupatki National Monument - roughly 30 miles outside of the city – which allows you to visit five prehistoric pueblos that are some of the finest preserved in the world.
