ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
Masonry Details
General Location South part of the site.
Specific Location South of roomblock in Architectural Block 100.
Selection Criteria Encountered during midden sampling.
Use Outdoor surface associated with the use of firepit (Feature 1).
Abandonment Abandoned as a use surface when refuse deposition began.
Postabandonment Processes Surface was covered with refuse.
Dating of Construction Not constucted, but used as a surface before refuse above it (Nonstructure 102) was deposited. Pueblo III White Painted sherds were found within 10 cm of this surface, so this surface could not have been used much before A.D. 1100, and could have been used any time between A.D. 1100 and 1300.
