ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
General Location Near the northeast corner of the great tower complex.
Specific Location 20 m east-northeast of Structure 1210.
Selection Criteria Surface was encountered during excavations to expose architecture associated with the water-control features at the great tower complex.
Use Type of use of this surface was not clear from the small amount of surface exposed, but was at least used as a foundation for one masonry wall of unknown function, or perhaps an entire structure. Use of this structure and surface was probably related to the drainage adjacent to the west.
Abandonment Abandoned as a result of roomblock abandonment.
Postabandonment Processes Surface was buried by stones that collapsed off of the wall (Feature 1) and by sediment that was naturally deposited.
Dating of Construction The pecked-block and double-stone-wide masonry styles of the wall on this surface (Nonstructure 1227, Feature 1, wall:other) indicate construction during the Pueblo III period (A.D. 1150-1300). Construction of this wall post-dates the bedrock surface beneath it (Nonstructure 1228). There is no evidence to indicate that this surface was not contemporaneous with the remainder of this architectural block.
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment Probably abandoned when the entire architectural block was abandoned.
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
Date range 6 (A.D. 1225–1300)
