The Agua Fria National Monument, a 71,000-acre parcel of land encompassing two mesas and a river valley, is a region rich with human prehistory. The landscape is freckled with sites dating to the 13th and 14th centuries, ranging in size from a single agricultural field to pueblos of one hundred or more rooms. One particular Pueblo, Pueblo La Plata, was the focus of my research as I attempted to reconstruct its changing population through the remains of its residential structure.
