Together, these results demonstrate the persistence of an elite matriline in Chaco for C dating, to document the hereditary origins of a long-lasting elite lineage at Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico (USA), the political and ritual centre of one of North America’s earliest complex societies.

Analyses of nuclear genome data from the six individuals with the highest DNA preservation demonstrate mother–daughter and grandmother–grandson relationships consistent with matrilineal descent in this elite lineage. Bone collagen was extracted from the crania of nine additional individuals interred above the wooden floor and purified using ultrafiltration.
Nearby were caches of flutes in the northeastern corner and carved, wooden ceremonial staffs in the ceiling.
The body was then entombed by a thick (70 cm) layer of clean sand devoid of artifacts except for two ceramic vessels.
A second individual (burial 13), also associated with large amounts of turquoise (n5,800), was buried on top of this thick layer of sand and covered with a unique plank floor.
