Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Culture National Historical Park.
Pueblo Pintado is considered a 'Chacoan outlier' site sharing many traits with sites at Chaco yet located several miles from the park.
The Chaco people were skilled masons, evolving their techniques with the growth of their culture.
The skill of Chaco masons is demonstrated by symmetry and the test of time.
