The top photo is of Jack Smith, next is of Long John Halford, the third is of Dan Harvick and the fourth of William D. Styron.

The last post has an error in it. The third photo is of William D. Styron and this photo above is of Dan Harvick.

Pithouse Village Sanders, Az.

Above is another drawing of rock art that is found at the site in Sanders, Az. which dates to more than two thousand years. As stated in the last post the Zuni Indian told Beale and Thorburn that the site dated before the great waters came. He is referring to a flood that is similar to the Noah flood that is recorded in the Bible. There are several Indian tribes in the United States that record that the flood was so great that only a few people survived in its wake. The great flood story has been recorded in many nations in the world.

Pithouse Village Sanders, Az.

Above is an illustration drawn of an unpublished site located in Northeast Arizona. The auther claims that these images date to 2,500 years old. She is probably close to an accurate date as Lt. Beale’s Zuni Guide stated that the images at the site he was trying to persuade Beale to go to were of people and animals. He also said that the site was there before the great waters came. The next post will give more information on the images.

Pithouse Village Sanders, Az.

This aerial photo shows the location of the pothouse village on the Red Hill. Note the road leading up to the site. The way the site has been dug shows that no Archaeologist dug this site. Most likely the land owner has done this or some friend was involved. If an Archaeologist had excavated the site the holes dug would have been covered over and not left exposed as they are in this photo.

Pictured above is another view of the small hill, near Sanders, Az, that has the remains of a pit house village located at the summit.  Note that the landscape surrounding the hill has a gray hue, while the hill itself is red in color.  The difference in hue, according to Archaeologist Adolph Bandelier in 1885, was caused by the area being extensively used by humans for hundreds of years.  In other words the red hue on the hill is a result of people living there for more than two thousand years.  He mentioned numerous sites around Zuni Pueblo where they found  areas  with a red hue, surrounded by a vast area of gray, which contained ancient prehistoric sites.  The Red Hill in the aerial photo above shows an excellent example of what Bandelier was talking about.  More photos and information to come.

Above is an aerial photo of a Pit House Village located some three miles south of Sanders, Az.  It is one of the oldest prehistoric sites in Northeastern Arizona.  It is the site that one of Lt. Beale’s Zuni guides tried to get Beale to visit when the expedition was camped at Navajo Springs, Az in 1857.  More posts to follow on this site.
