Discover the Anasazi Indians

The Anasazi
The tale of the mysterious Anasazi
An ancient people, the Anasazi Indians are the ones to pay a tribute to for the fantastic cliff dwellings discovered on the areas of today New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado. The word “Anasazi” means “enemy ancestors”.
It is believed that this people appeared during the period of Christ birth. And after a thousand of years, the Anasazi Indians flourished and started do build their homes into the cliffs of the Four Corners. Today, those dwellings can be reached only by climbing. Namely the wonderful cliff pueblos represent their greatest achievements. In addition, the Anasazi are also noted for creating roads and irrigation systems for their crops.  
It is the way of living of Anasazi and the things they left behind that defines the American Southwest. Nobody truly knows how they managed to bring huge logs from faraway forests to build their dwellings, but it’s still of high interest.
It is considered that the most wonderful cliff dwellings are those found in Chaco Canyon, in northwest New Mexico. Many scientist, researchers, visitors and those who are interested in the Anasazi Indians continue to look for evidence and explanations to the mysterious and strange events that took place there in Chaco Canyon.
Based on scientists’ opinion, the Anasazi built multi-story dwellings that could be compared to the Roman Coliseum in terms of size. Moreover, they were also amazing specialists in astronomy, agriculture and water works.
There is much speculation about why they left the cliff dwellings. The most rational explanation is that climate change seriously damaged their crop culture. Also, there are opinions that they had to move due to the increased presence of the nomadic tribes. Regardless of the reason, the Anasazi still represent a subject of discussion for many scientists who try to find out about this people as much as possible.
