Friday, Feb 17: The Sun, the Moon and Chaco Canyon

For those who don't know the magic and mystery of Chaco Canyon—this Four Corners site has been sporadically inhabited by humans since 10,000 B.C. including by the Anasazi, who culturally influenced an area twice the size of Ireland. These people were incredibly technologically advanced for their time: Certain buildings and roads leading to them were aligned to mirror solar and lunar activity, signifying that they were particularly important, while the larger building structure contained over 650 rooms that were up to four stories high. To learn more about this mysterious area join Anna Sofaer (the researcher who discovered the Sun Dagger site of Chaco Canyon 40 years ago) and research affiliate Rob Weiner for their lecture "The Sun, the Moon and Chaco Canyon," to discuss their recent findings while exploring the Anasazi's relationship to other Mesoamerican cultures and to preview the film, Written on the Landscape: Mysteries Beyond Chaco Canyon. For only $4-$6 this Friday, Feb. 17, from 7-8:30pm you can pick the minds of these Chaco Canyon experts at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.
