Mesa Verde National Park

Gustav Nordenskiöld was the first to use a scientific, systematic approach in exploring Mesa Verde, trying to study, rather than plunder, ancient buildings. Nevertheless, when, after completing his research, Nordenskiöld wanted to take the exhibits he had collected to European museums, he was arrested and accused of plundering ancient values. As a result, the situation was successfully resolved, Nordenskiöld was released, and a significant part of the artifacts he discovered was still taken to Sweden.

After returning to Europe, Gustav Nordenskiöld published the results of his explorations of Mesa Verde, making this unique historical monument known to the world. It is believed that it was thanks to Nordenskiöld and his work that Mesa Verde was brought to the attention of the public and the US government, which resulted in the creation of the Mesa Verde National Park in 1906. Since then and until now, work has been carried out not only on the study, but also on the restoration of ancient Indian structures.

On the territory of the Mesa Verde National Park, which occupies more than 200 km 2, there are several large complexes and a number of individual structures (about six hundred buildings in total). The most famous of them are Cliff’s Palace, Balcony House, Spruce House, Long House and others. Almost all of them were built of sandstone with clay mortar and plastered, many buildings were decorated.

The largest and most famous complex of buildings in Mesa Verde is the “Cliff Palace”. Built over a period of seventy years, from about 1190 to 1260, “Cliff Palace” consists of one hundred and fifty dwellings (“apartments”), twenty-three kivas(round ceremonial platforms) and several special structures, among which the towers stand out. More than a hundred people lived in the “Cliff Palace”, and archaeological research suggests that. that the residents of this complex had a high social status.

Mesa Verde is one of the most popular attractions in the United States. Every year hundreds of thousands of tourists visit its ancient buildings and the nearby archaeological museum. In 1978, Mesa Verde National Park was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
