Excavation Site, Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Mesa Verde National Park has some of the best preserved Indian ruins to be found anywhere. The park is also quite active archeologically, with constant ongoing excavations. This particular site is known as a "pitroom". Pitrooms were located beneath ground and were used by the Anasazi for ceremonies, cooking and sleeping. In a sense, they were the multipurpose rooms of their day. The rooms had roofs with a hole in them through which a ladder granted access.
