Exploring Bandelier National Monument


Evidence of human activity in what is now Bandelier National Monument dates back more than ten thousand years. The earliest people to access the area lived a nomadic lifestyle, migrating by 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 two thousand years ago. Exploring Bandelier National Monument offers answers to some common questions about these early settlers and the natural environment at the park. While focused toward young adult readers, everyone can learn interesting facts about the history and nature of the area encompassed by Bandelier National Monument.
