ABOUT THIS STRUCTURE
General Location In the great tower complex.
Specific Location Adjacent to, and southeast of the great tower bi-wall structure.
Interpretive Type
Structure Use Use could not be determined because testing was halted. However, a kiva-like use can be tentatively inferred on the basis of the type of architecture that was exposed. Also, possible mutual access and therefore some type of association between this kiva and the unnumbered bi-wall room adjacent to the northwest is possible, because there may be a tunnel or passageway between these two structures.
Dating
