Let's Review Lakeland, Florida

Chaco Canyon (Northwest New Mexico)

Lets visit Chaco Canyon Park (NM, USA) from Lakeland, Florida. During the 9th to the 12th century CE, Chaco Canyon was the epicenter of a pre-Columbian civilisation that flourished in the San Juan Basin of the American Southwest. Given their relationship to current indigenous peoples of the Southwest whose lives are structured around Pueblos, or apartment-style communal housing, Chacoan civilization marks a unique phase in the history of an ancient people now referred to as "Ancestral Puebloans." Long-term planning and extensive social organization were necessary to construct epic works of public architecture that were unprecedented in scale and complexity in the ancient North American civilization, and which remained unsurpassed in size and complexity until historic times. Chaco was an culture that is sophisticated strong spiritual links to the surrounding nature, as shown by the precise alignment of these structures with the cardinal directions and the cyclical positions of the sun's rays and moon, as well as an abundance of exotic trade services and products discovered inside these buildings. The fact that this cultural fluorescence took place in the high-altitude semi-arid desert of the Colorado Plateau, where even living is a feat, and that the long-term planning and organization it entailed were carried out without the use of written language, makes it all the more extraordinary. The absence of a written record adds to the mystery surrounding Chaco; with proof limited to artefacts and constructions left behind, many tantalizingly important issues regarding Chacoan civilization remain unanswered after decades of research.
