About Mesa Verde National Park elsewhere
"Here considerable remains of rock habitations (pit houses on the plateau, cliff dwellings on the sides of the canyons), multi-story houses of adobe or stone built round a central square (pueblos) and cult sites (kivas) of the Anasazi Indians have been preserved."
"More than 600 cliff dwellings made by the ancestral Pueblo people, also known as the Anasazi, are scattered throughout Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado (shown here)."
"The 164,000-acre national monument, located west of Cortez, contains thousands of archaeological sites -- what some claim is the highest density of archaeological sites in the United States -- including the remains of villages, cliff dwellings, sweat lodges, and petroglyphs at least 700 years old, and possibly as much as 10,000 years old."
"Mug House, a typical cliff dwelling of the period, was home to around 100 people who shared 94 small rooms and eight kivas built right up against each other and sharing many of their walls; builders in these areas maximized space in any way they could and no areas were considered off-limits to construction."
"Guided tours are the only way to get up-close with some of Mesa Verde's greatest and most outstanding cliff dwellings: Cliff Palace, Balcony House, and Long House (on Wetherill Mesa)."
