Inscription. From 500 A.D. onward, New Mexico underwent a number of comparatively rapid changes. The people throughout the western two-thirds of the state became increasingly restricted to smaller and smaller areas resulting in the development of many regional differences in architecture, ceramics and other crafts. Between 1100 and 1400 A.D., vast areas of New Mexico were abandoned for reasons that are still poorly understood.

Also see . . .  Wikipedia Entry for Pueblo. “Pueblos are modern and old communities of Native Americans in the Southwestern United States of America. The first Spanish explorers of the Southwest used this term to describe the communities housed in apartment-like structures built of stone, adobe mud, and other local material. These structures were usually multi-storied buildings surrounding an open plaza. They were occupied by hundreds to thousands of Pueblo people, and were only accessible through a ladder able to be lowered only from the inside, thus preventing break-ins and unwanted guests.” (Submitted on August 13, 2014.)
