ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
General Location In the great tower complex.
Specific Location 8 m northeast of Structure 1210.
Selection Criteria Surface was encountered during excavations to expose and document masonry wall (possible water-control feature associated with the great tower complex).
Use Used as a surface on which to construct Feature 1 (wall:other), a masonry water control feature (probably a dam). Surface was probably also used to access water that would have accumulated behind (north of) the dam when runoff flowed down the drainage to the north.
Abandonment Surface was covered by naturally-deposited sediments during the occupation of the adjacent roomblock.
Postabandonment Processes Another surface was used above it.
Dating of Construction Surface was not constructed. This natural bedrock surface served as a foundation on which to build Feature 1 (wall:other). The types of pottery sherds in these deposits, and the pecked-block masonry style of the wall post-date A.D. 1180.
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment Surface was covered by naturally deposited sediments sometime during the occupation of the adjacent roomblock.
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
Date range 6 (A.D. 1225–1300)
