 Lowry Pueblo (near Cortez, New Mexico)

Lowry Pueblo is a part of Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. This 40-room pueblo, built circa 1060 A.D., was home to about 100 people. The ruins include a number of kivas round, subterranean rooms for ceremonial and domestic activities. Most of the pueblo is open for visitation. There is a self-guided interpretative tour. This web site at the Field Museum (Chicago, Illinois) has information about the ruins and their excavation (including an image gallery) posted as part of the Paul S. Martin Collection.
