Chaco Puerco Pottery Three Lobe Pitcher, Arizona Territory, ca. 950 - 1050 CE. Found at Clint's Well Arizona (Coconino County) in 1987. Painted with scrolling design of black on red while skeleton adorns handle. 6 1/2" high x 4" diameter. In excellent condition with slight wear to rim. Ex: Robert Andrews collection, Alburquerque, NM. The Anasazi people were farmers who not only built homesteads and small villages across the Four Corners region, but also built a great cultural capital in Chaco Canyon in the northwest corner of what is now New Mexico. Between 900 and 1150, they dominated the region. Their engineering feats included towns with multistory apartment buildings and a road network to connect them. The largest of the apartment buildings, or great houses, is Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon. Chaco Canyon’s dominance was short-lived. By the end of the thirteenth century, the Anasazi had abandoned the area and migrated south and east to smaller settlements. Their descendants are the Pueblo peoples who now inhabit the region.
