ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
Masonry Details
General Location North part of the site.
Specific Location South of roomblock in Architectural Block 1100.
Selection Criteria Encountered during midden sampling.
Use Outdoor use surface defined by the presence of pit feature (Feature 1); this surface is probably associated with the occupation of Architectural Block 1100.
Abandonment
Postabandonment Processes Covered by refuse that was probably deposited by the residents of this architectural block; upper portion of this midden might have eroded away.
Dating of Construction Not constructed, but was used as a surface before refuse (Nonstructure 1106) was deposited.
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment Abandoned as a use surface when refuse deposition began. The presence of Mesa Verde Black-on-white pottery in the fill of a pit (Feature 1) in this surface indicates the surface was used after A.D. 1180.
