Stunning 3D Re-Creation of Chaco Canyon

All 14 major Chaco buildings have been faithfully re-constructed. Excavate the ruins, find priceless artifacts, and the secrets of each Great House are revealed to you. Above we see the famous Pueblo Bonito, in its ruined state within the game......

Pueblo Bonito: Restored!

How did we restore Pueblo Bonito into its former glory? With the use of Virtual Archaeology! We gently dug around in the ruins, and uncovered artifacts and treasures, which gave us the clues we needed. The detail is incredible, from the smoke wafting up from the Kivas to the Ponderosa pine tree in the courtyard. Watch as the sun and moon cast shadows and the light plays across the alignment of architecture and canyon. It's your personal time machine back to the glory days of Chaco Canyon. 

Virtual Archaeology in 3D

To unlock the secrets of Chaco Canyon, you'll need to dig around the Great Houses, and find realistic Anasazi artifacts and objects. With each discovery, you'll reveal more answers to the mystery. Fun, entertaining, and highly educational for the entire family. Scrape your trowel against the dust of 1,000 years, and carefully recover priceless treasures.

Fajada Butte, Home of the "Sun Dagger"

Soaring 135 meters into the desert sky, Fajada Butte is home to the Sun Dagger, three sandstone slabs arranged to create specific light and shadows on a petroglyph behind them.....

The Amazing Sun Dagger

The Sun Dagger is a remarkable celestial calendar of the Anasazi, aka "Ancestral Pueblo Indians" Research by the Solstice Project has shown that the Chaco culture's ceremonial architecture was built to align with the cycles of the sun and moon. The Sun Dagger is a remarkably accurate pre-historic calendar that tracks solstices, the equinox, and a subtle 18.6 year cycle of the moon. This would have been extremely important for agriculture (planting, harvesting) and ceremonial events. This program has a working 3D model of the Sun Dagger. Simply put in any date and time, and see how the play of light and shadows appeared!

Realistic Artifacts

More than 40 artifacts have been reconstructed in 3D for you to excavate. Includes replicas of many important items uncovered during the early days of Chaco archaeology.
