Location: Tuzigoot ruins, Arizona.
Tizigoot is an ancient village or pueblo built by a culture known as the Sinagua. The pueblo consisted of 110 rooms including second and third story structures. The first buildings were built around A.D. 1000. The Sinagua were agriculturalists with trade connections that spanned hundreds of miles. The people left the area around 1400.
Orange colored field that you see is the result of decades of deposition of waste material from the copper mine active from 1883 to 1953. Very interesting to see the ruins of two civilizations side by side.
