Exploring Bandelier National Monument
Evidence of human activity in what is now Bandelier National Monument dates back more than 10,000 years. The earliest people to access the area lived a nomadic lifestyle, migrating through following game animals such as mammoths, camels, and other giant ice-age mammals. Over time, the earth became warmer and dryer, allowing the people known as Ancestral Puebloans to settle in the area starting roughly 2,000 years ago.

While focused towards young adult readers, everyone can learn interesting facts about the history and nature of the area encompassed by Bandelier National Monument.
