Ancient Roads of the Chaco World: Monumentality, Religion, and Power

December 1, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MST

CU Museum of Natural History
Boulder, CO 80309 United States

AIA Society: Boulder

In this talk, Rob Weiner will discuss his recent fieldwork throughout the Chaco World, which combines LiDAR, drone aerial photography, and on-the-ground documentation to investigate the history, use, and meaning of monumental roads in Chacoan society. He will focus on new insights regarding the destinations of roads and ritual practices carried out on them, with particular attention to their role in perpetuating inequality. Insights from collaboration with the Navajo Nation and comparative examples of ritual pathways from throughout the ancient world offer new understandings of the role of linear earthwork features in the ancient Southwest.
