Lets visit Chaco in NW New Mexico, USA from Hugo, OK. These chambers were presumably community facilities used for rites and gatherings, with a fire bowl in the centre and entrance to the available room given by a ladder extending through a smoke hole in the ceiling, based on the usage of similar buildings by current Puebloan peoples. When not integrated into a large home complex, oversized kivas, or "great kivas," might accommodate hundreds of people and stood alone, frequently constituting a center location for surrounding communities of (relatively) tiny dwellings. Chacoans used a variation of the "core-and-veneer" technology to sustain multi-story house that is great, which comprised chambers with floor sizes and ceiling heights significantly greater than those of pre-existing houses. An inner core of coarsely hewn sandstone held together with mud mortar served as the foundation for a veneer of thinner facing rocks. These wall space had been approximately one meter thick at the base, tapering as they ascended to save weight, indicating that the upper levels were planned while the first was being built. While these mosaic-style veneers remain obvious today, they were placed to many interior and exterior walls after construction was completed to protect the mud mortar from water harm. Structures of this magnitude, beginning with Chetro Ketl in Chaco Canyon, required an vast number of three vital materials: sandstone, water, and lumber. Chacoans mined, sculpted, and faced sandstone from canyon walls stone that is using, choosing hard, dark-colored tabular stone at the very top of cliffs during early building, then going as styles altered during later construction to gentler, bigger tan-colored stone discovered reduced on cliffs. Liquid, which was needed to make dirt mortar and plaster along with sand, silt, and clay, was scarce and only came in the shape of brief and summer that is frequently severe.
