Chaco Canyon Kivas

 While visiting the ruins in Chaco Canyon, we were able to view many kivas.  

 Kivas are almost always round - but a few are oval in shape.
 We took note of the varying sizes of these kivas.  
It is thought that each clan may have had their own kiva.

I love the graphic design of this architectural plan for Pueblo Bonito.  The circles and squares - and the way this pueblo was shaped like a D on account of it being build right up against the cliff.
