Event Description

Mayor Richard J. Berry invites you to celebrate New Mexico's Centennial with the Speaker & Living History Series at the KiMo.

Admission is free.

Rich Friedman - Archeologist and Historian will present Mysteries of Chaco Canyon.  This media enhanced presentation will highlight several "mysteries" of Chaco Canyon, and the people who inhabited the Four Corners Region from approximately 450 to 1350 A.D. It will begin with a 20 min. viewing of a portion of the groundbreaking  "The Mystery of Chaco Canyon" documentary, directed by Anna Sofaer. The balance of the presentation will be a media rich experience that will cover several of the enigmatic archaeological features found in and around Chaco Canyon. Included in the discussion will be 3D reconstructions and animations of the Great Houses, a review of the so called Chetro Ketl Field, the “amphitheater” of Chaco Canyon, and a brief discussion on the source of construction timber and corn for Chaco Canyon.

The presentation will conclude with a discussion on Chacoan “Roads”. Included will dramatic new 3D images of the Great North Road created using data acquired with a grant to the Solstice Project from National Trust for Historic Preservation. The mysterious Great North Road is a 30 ft. wide linear feature (in some areas multiple linear features) that extends 40+ miles to the north of Chaco Canyon. Examples of other Chacoan “roads” will also be shown, including the fascinating circular "hoop" roads.
