Defensive Position 40 x 40
Click Image to Enlarge
This Anasazi Kiva is located in an ideal position for defense. It sits below an overhang, which protects it from enemies above, it also protects from the weather. The only access is along a narrow path to the right hand side of the photograph; in places the path is only wide enough for one person to walk along at a time. Below the path is a big drop down to the canyon bottom below. The residence of this group of buildings was able to sleep securely in this well defended position.
