This volume sheds new light on the geography and the history of the Chimney Rock Archaeological Area in southwestern Colorado.

Home until the mid-twelfth century to the ancestral Pueblo peoples, the Chaco Canyon and Chimney Rock area holds a wealth of information for present-day archaeologists to uncover.

This collection investigates the architecture, location, and alignment of Pueblo great houses and the significant features of designed clay feather holders.

The contributors suggest varied pre-historical uses for the towering double spires of Chimney Rock: as a logging camp, military garrison, home of Chacoan priests, astronomical observatory, and/or ceremonial-pilgrimage center.

Chimney Rock: The Ultimate Outlier is a model of multi-faceted inquiry into a physically intriguing and certainly symbol-laden ancient North American residential site.
