1200-year-old home found (Utah)

Breaking News

KANAB - For a nearly 1,200-year-old home, it's held up pretty well.

"Amazing" and"pristine" were the words archaeologists used to characterize the site of the ancient settlement just north of Kanab in southern Utah. It is believed that the single-family dwelling belonged to the Virgin Anasazi, who once flourished in the region, said Utah Department of Transportation spokesman Kevin Kitchen. The Virgin Anasazi was a prehistoric American Indian culture that lived along the Virgin River.

The culture predates other American Indian tribes who inhabited the area.
