Arroyo Hondo Pueblo

About 1300 C.E., a small pueblo, located just south of present day Santa Fe, New Mexico, rapidly transformed from a one hundred room hamlet to a one thousand-room pueblo boomtown.

Extensive archaeological research at Arroyo Hondo Pueblo disclosed wide-ranging details about its origin, rapid growth, the inhabitants' way of life, pathology, and spirituality, during a period of severe climate change, and regional violence. After 125 years, these forces were intertwined in the town's demise. Arroyo Hondo Pueblo characterizes the emergence of a new architectural style that helped set in motion the rise of the Classic Rio Grande pueblo pattern.
