    I just read a very good book...ĒFinders KeepersĒ by Craig Childs. I recommend it. Itíll get you thinking if youíre into exploring for ruins and the like.

    Yes that is a good read. To go along with that I'd recommend "Cowboys and Cave Dwellers" by Fred Blackburn

    Interesting stuff.
    It's only "science" if it supports the narrative.

    Interesting stuff.
    Also how Jailhouse Ruin gets it's name interestingly enough...
    But this is the interior of a Kiva. Here we are seeing the remains of the inner wall and hard to say if that keyway was a back door or opening to an anteroom, storage, or just broken down. The "window" is just broken wall revealing it's interior showing that wood was used in construction, just as in the case of the Jailhouse Ruin.
    Kivas come in many slightly differing configurations and depending on the size some features may be more or less exaggerated. They are usually round, more rarely square or D shaped, but many of them will have some kind of bench or shelf arrangement around the outer wall. It is thought that specific construction techniques such as support pillars and ventilator shaft design may point to particular influencing major settlements such as Chaco Canyon or Mesa Verde. Kiva's generally do not have windows or a door in a traditional sense to the outside, they were typically accessed through the roof with a ladder. This one, though not much is left, is more interesting than most in the area with it's mudded walls and neatly done beam supported nook like shelves/benches.

    Iíll be home from a month long road trip soon and Iíve got quite a few shots of some nice, very isolated ruins that Iíll post up. Iíve also been reading quite a bit about the history of pre and post Colombian tribes in the southwest and northern Mexico...history that was written 150 years ago from the Indians themselves. Powell is a good recourse for that...that guy really got around. Iím convinced it was a mega drought that leveled them...along with the chaos that it wrought, of course.
