Chaco Culture National Historical Park Off The Beaten Path: 9 reviews and 37 photos
Bc 50 is a small residential structure located just east of the Casa Rinconada Great Kiva and about one-half mile south of Pueblo Bonito. This rectangular building, also known as “Tseh So” (rock crystal in Navajo), had twenty-six ground-floor masonry rooms with four kivas along the east side. Normally these villages were single-story construction that was renovated and expanded over time; however, new buildings were sometimes built on top of old buildings. However, at Bc 50, the substructure and superstructure components of the building indicate that it may have been a multi-story building. Ceramic evidence at Bc 50 suggests a long period of occupation primarily centered around 900 - 1000 A.D. but the occupation may not have been continuous. The visible walls date from the later period of occupation (after A.D. 1050). In the villages, single-course masonry walls were used, rather than core-and-veneer like in the great houses.
