[From the Original 1927 Catalog] This group is much larger than the foregoing one and is not far from it. A narrow street some three meters wide runs between the northeast wall of the Uhle group and the southwest wall of Bandelier. It is entirely surrounded by a high wall which encloses the ruins in a square. This is also divided into many walled apartments. Those enclosed are the oldest and best preserved of the works. It is in one of these divisions that houses have been found preserving their original form. Also herein is preserved a field showing ancient cultivated furrows. This is not known to the tourists or the curiosity seekers. In front of its southwest wall within a space of 200 meters or more rise this Chaiuak and Tschudi groups. Between the southwest wall of the Uhle group and the northeast wall of Chaiuak are many ruins; wells, remains of villages, small enclosures, and platforms of artificial nature; but all are in a bad state of preservation.
