Archaeology Southwest Magazine Vol. 34, No. 4

Issue editor: Paul F. Reed

The Middle San Juan region lies midway between Chaco Canyon and the Greater Mesa Verde region. Compared to Mesa Verde and Chaco, the Middle San Juan was very well watered for much of the last 2,000 years, with three major drainages and more than half of the Four Corners’ water moving across the region from east to west.

As the region developed through the Pueblo era, it became a cultural middle ground, as well. At present, much of our understanding of the region in its heyday—the Chaco and post-Chaco eras—is anchored in the great house communities known as Salmon Ruins (Salmon Pueblo) and Aztec Ruins (Aztec Community).
