The Aztec Ruins National Monument lies along the Animas River in New Mexico and commemorates the largest ancestral Pueblo community in the region, preserving incredible historic buildings, roadways, and artifacts from the 11th through the 13th centuries. Park artifacts help visitors understand how the community developed and changed over its 200-year history, from stone and wood tools to pottery to turquoise and obsidian jewelry.
