Phantom Ranch Tour - the Bright Angel Pueblo

This is a photo of the Bright Angel Pueblo.

Detailed Description

The Bright Angel Pueblo (archeological ruins) was visited by John Wesley Powell's 1869 expedition. The archeological site was heavily damaged by the construction of the Kaibab Trail and a flood of early park visitors, but it has been partially restored. Although this eleventh-century pueblo is in a very isolated location on the Bright Angel Creek delta, pottery and other artifacts found at the site and in the area suggest that the people had traded with other communities in the region. The design of the pueblo dwellings, kivas, and other features show that the inhabitants shared a cultural identity with other Puebloan cultures in the region.
