Raise Macaws Here?

In the 15th century, near modern-day Casa Grande in northern Mexico, thrived a vibrant community and trading center called Paquime. There, tropical birds called macaws, were brought up from the jungles far to the south. Thousands of macaws were bred and raised in compact adobe boxes that outlined one of the plazas. Disk-shaped rocks with circular openings were placed at the front of each of these macaw pens.

Because we do not know where this stone came from, we will never be able to answer these questions. When you remove artifacts from their original place valuable information is lost forever. The artifact looses its meaning and become simply an object. Please leave artifacts exactly as you find them.
