Update: The Mac/PC Computer game & simulation “Anasazi of Chaco Canyon” is available now at Amazon.com
Neil Judd was one of the first to excavate the Anasazi Ruins of Chaco Canyon. After he discovered the legendary turquoise necklace in Pueblo Bonito, he wrote:
“I cannot adequately describe the thrill of that discovery. It was so unexpected, so unforeseen. A casual scrape of a trowel across the ash-strewn floor, a stroke as mechanical as a thousand other strokes made every day, exposed the long-hidden treasure…..”
Now, for the first time ever, you can re-create the thrill of that discovery in Chaco Canyon on any Mac or PC computer. The program has 14 full 3D recreations of Anasazi Great Houses and important buildings, over 40 faithfully recreated Anasazi artifacts, and a special bonus… A functioning Sun Dagger!
Where is Chaco Canyon?
Its not easy to get to! First of beware that some roads that GPS devices recommend may not be suitable for passenger cars. Chaco Canyon is located in Northwestern New Mexico, and there is no public transportation to the canyon. The nearest airports are in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Durango, Colorado, and Farmington, New Mexico. Its not easy to get to these Anasazi ruins!
