Ancient Zuni pueblo

Ancient Zuni pueblo
"Atsinna Ruins atop El Morro. Archeological evidence shows that Atsinna and nearby massive pueblos were built about the same time--in the late 1200s. After only 75 years they were abandoned. (Perhaps they were meant to be only temporary: unusual heat and drought may have driven the Zuni from the river valleys to the high ground around El Morro.)"
