Farming then did not mean vast fields like we use today. Anasazi and Sinagua people modified these small terraces to grow hand-tended corn, cotton, beans, and squash. We know the climate was about what it is now, very dry for farming. The terraces caught vital run-off from rain.

Behind you are rock circles that appear to be ruins of individual, separate rooms. These are common, but we do not know what they were used for.
