Casa Grande

This was a big ceremonial building in a village complex built by the Hohokum people aound 1100 to 1300. They had irrigation systems set up for lots of crops and managed to be pretty successful . From the artifacts that were found ;there was quite a trade system with tribes from different areas- some pretty far away. After arould 1300 they kinda disappeared- weather change is suspected. Pretty amazing that people could live in that desert!
