A new research study has demonstrated that global warming did not contribute to the demise of the Ancestral Puebloan civilization.
The people had managed droughts much more severe than the early 12th century dry period and, Dr. Skopec adds, much of their land could have supported even larger populations.
Their abandonment of Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly and other sites was an extension of their normal pattern of migration, he further added.
