Sinagua Ruins

The Sinagua, also known as the Western Anasazi, were a pre-Columbian people inhabiting the area in central Arizona ranging from present day Flagstaff down to the Verde River valley. They occupied the area from 500AD to 1425AD but departed mysteriously leaving only the remains of their settlements. The exact reason for why the Sinagua left is unknown but archaelogists have suggested warfare or drought as possible causes.
