Title: Plans of expansion by the Mogollon within the Gila Cliff Dwellings

Author: Arren Swift

Source: Quote for a National Park Ranger

"According to Archeologist Larry Nordby there is evidence in the Gila Cliff Dwellings of unfinished construction. It is a possibility that the Mogollon were in the process of expanding their living quarters prior to their departure from the site."
