The article states that theories that support the use of the buildings in the settlements of Chaco Canyon and provides three of suppor. Conversely, the professor states that none of these theories is convincing and he refutes each of the author’s reasons.
First, the reading avers that the Chaco structures were residential, with each housing hundreds of people. The professor agrees that the structures from outside may seem like the well-known apartment buildings at Taos, New mexico. But, he says that from the design from inside it opposes this theory. If hundreds people were living there, fire places should have found there too. Because, people used them for cooking. But, a few fireplaces found there for about 10 families, despite of the fact that structures have enough rooms for hundreds. This idea clearly proof that the Chaco Canyon structures could not have been residential.
Second, the article claims that the Chaco structures used to store food supplies, such as grain maize. The professor, on the other hand, refutes this point by explaining this theory is not supported by evidence. The structures have enough space to store food, however, researchers did not find either traces for maize nor did they find containers of grain maize. Therefore, if they did not discover any spills and remain of big containers, it clearly proof that the structures were used for storage food supplies at all.
Third, the reading posits that the houses used as ceremonial centers,broken pots that have been discovered supports this theory. However, the professor opposes this point by stating that this theory is not well supported. He explains that the mound that discovered, in one house of the Chaco Structures, contain other materials that unexpectedly to be found in ceremonial centers. For example, huge quantities of construction materials, like sand, and construction tools too. The professor adds that this place could have been a trash place for construction materials. Also, broken pots could be regular trash from construction workers, such as their meals. And so, the professor concludes this theory has not good evidence to proof that the houses were used for special ceremonies.
