Building an Ancient Cliff Dwelling


Hidden in sheltered alcoves deep in the canyons of the American Southwest, ancestral puebloan cliff dwellings tell the story of a once thriving ancient culture. Known today as Anasazi or Sinagua, these people were likely the ancestors of modern day Pueblo Indians like the Hopi. In this build video, I recreate the ruins of an ancient cliff dwelling below the canyon walls of Thunder Mesa with tips for carving Hydrocal plaster, LED lighting, and painting and finishing high desert scenery.

Thanks for watching, amigos!
