Newly discovered ruins near my

Newly discovered ruins near my former home of Socorro, New Mexico, are shedding new light on the fate of the Anasazi people. The Anasazi are best known to the average person for their cliff dwellings found in the Four Corners region. I’m trying to find more information on these sites — they are in an area that I spent a good deal of time in.

  1. Maclean’s magazine just recently did an article on the last global drought - around 1100 AD - and part of that article focused on the Anasazi. They theorize that the Anasazi built their cliff dwellings in response to that drought. Not alot of detail given - but an interesting piont to follow up on. :) nat
