ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
Masonry Details
General Location Southwest part of the site.
Specific Location At the north edge of the roomblock in Architectural Block 2500.
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 construction and occupation of Architectural Block 2500.
Abandonment Abandoned when occupation of this area ended.
Postabandonment Processes Surface was covered by cultural materials associated with occupation of roomblock, alluvial deposits, then wall fall and aeolian/alluvial sediments.
Dating of Construction This surface was not constructed, but was prehistoric ground surface when the adjacent roomblock was constructed. The pecked-block masonry style of the north wall of that structure indicates construction during the Pueblo III period (A.D. 1150-1300).
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment The presence of Pueblo III White Painted pottery on this surface indicates that the surface was abandoned sometime after A.D. 1100, and association with the adjacent roomblock indicates the surface was abandoned during the Pueblo III period (1150-1300).
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
Date range 5 (A.D. 1180–1260)
