ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
Masonry Details
General Location Southwest part of the site.
Specific Location Just north of the roomblock in Architectural Block 2400.
Selection Criteria Surface was encountered during excavations to expose a segment of the north wall of the adjacent roomblock.
Use Outdoor use surface associated with the occupation of Architectural Block 2400.
Abandonment Abandoned when occupation of this area ended.
Postabandonment Processes Covered with cultural deposits from occupation, burned construction material (either secondary refuse or naturally deposited from adjacent burned structure), wall fall, and aeolian/alluvial deposits.
Dating of Construction Surface was not constructed, but is thought to have been used as a surface on which to build the adjacent roomblock during the Pueblo III period (A.D. 1150-1300). This inference is based on the pecked-block and double-stone-wide masonry styles of the exposed roomblock wall.
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment Thought to have been abandoned sometime after A.D. 1100; this inference is based on the presence of Pueblo III White Painted pottery on this surface.
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
Date range 2 (A.D. 1100–1225)
