This effort to develop businesses to exploit this new resource brought knowledge of the existence of Anasazi sites to a large audience through advertising while also giving other Americans direct contact with Anasazi remains. The Anglo American world received its first impressions of the ancient Southwest beginning in 1846 with the outbreak of the Mexican War and with subsequent official American exploratory expeditions in the area. Americans engaged in the fur trade and in the Santa Fe trade had previously seen or heard of Anasazi ruins, but the first reports of such sites reached the East through official government explorers.

He also commanded infinitely greater resources and spent considerably longer than two months of a long and full life as a field archaeologist and two years of it as an anthropologist (Hough 1931; Swanton and Roberts 1931). But museums take center stage here. In the same year that Nordenskiold was at Mesa Verde, his countryman Artur Hazelius opened the Skansen Museum in Stockholm.

Moreover, Hosta was a significant figure in imparting the Montezuma legend because he guided others, including the great photographer William Henry Jackson, through the area and continued to describe the sites as Aztec ruins.
