The Anasazi
The Anasazi are a well known and interesting prehistoric culture that existed in prehistoric times throughout the northwest part of the Southwest US.

Later Anasazi groups constructed and lived in cliff dwellings such as Mesa Verde. The designs on the pottery made and used by the Anasazi are also intriguing. After occupying vast tracts of the Southwest the Anasazi abandoned many areas leaving behind their ruins, pottery and other signs of substantial and long term occupation.

Many questions exist as to why the Anasazi culture left areas such as the Moapa Valley. Signs of warfare, disease, invasion and other factors which would likely account for such a shift in population are not apparent. 

The museum outstanding exhibits of the pottery and artifacts found by archaeologists. We show some of that collection here and recommend that a day trip the Lost City Museum is worth your time for this and many other reasons.
