Mesa Verde National ParkThere is an enormous gap between identifying pithouse features—the hollows and scattered stones—and visualizing the inhabitants' daily lives. Set in the four corner post holes, timbers supported a ceiling that was probably head-high. Above the firepit there was probably a smoke hole, which also may have been the pithouse entrance. Some features are more revealing.
