Architecture of the Ancient Ones
For more than a hundred years, archaeologists have worked in the Southwest attempting to learn more about the Anasazi, now called Ancient Ones, who once lived in the massive stone buildings at such places as Chaco, Canyon de Chelly, and Navajo National Monument. In ARCHITECTURE OF THE ANCIENT ONES, photographer Val Brinkerhoff takes us on a quiet walk among the visually stunning ruins left behind, through which much has been learned about the Ancient Ones of 800 years ago. These archaelogical treasures are places of great presence, power, and peace. Featuring unique juxtapositions of hand-hewn stone nestled admist unusual rock forms in the American Southwest desert landscape, these ancient Native American dwelling sites are places of refuge for modern-day man.
