Lost Kivas of San Lazaro

This is the book Ric Hajovsky wrote detailing the discovery and excavation of two underground ceremonial chambers in San Lazaro Pueblo, a Tanoan site located in the Galisteo Basin, 17 miles south of Santa Fe, New Mexico.


Besides detailing the excavation, the unusual features of the kivas, and the artifacts uncovered, the book includes a time-line of events at San Lazaro, starting with its founding in the 1100s and running through its abandonment in 1680.
