ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
Masonry Details
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 it was probably used in association with the adjacent drainage.
Abandonment Bedrock was abandoned as a surface as sediment accumulated on it.
Postabandonment Processes These processes did not affect this surface, as it was buried beneath sediment.
Dating of Construction Surface was not constructed, but was probably used early in the occupation of this architectural block during the Pueblo III period (A..D. 1150-1300).
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment Bedrock surface was no longer used when sediment accumulated on it naturally.
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
Date range 6 (A.D. 1225–1300)
