Does anyone listening know if there is a Mexican office responsible for the
casas grandes site in the Chihuahua basin? I understand that since it has
been extensively pillages and was mostly adobe, there's not much on the surface
to compare to Pueblo Bonito and Chaco Canyon, but from Alice Kehoe that it
replaced P.B. as a trade center for awhile after P.B. declined. Anyone been
there? I took the trouble to hike to Painted Cave in Bandelier and found it
worth while. Still have great pictures for my classes. Is there anything
(including even veryrustic accomodations) to make a visit to Casas Grandes wor
