ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
General Location South part of the site.
Specific Location At the north edge of the roomblock in Architectural Block 2600.
Selection Criteria Surface was encountered during excavation to expose the north wall of the adjacent roomblock.
Use Outdoor use surface associated with construction and occupation of Architectural Block 2600 and with Feature 1 (curved wall).
Abandonment Abandoned when occupation of this area ended.
Postabandonment Processes Covered with naturally deposited sediment and wall fall.
Dating of Construction This surface is associated with the adjacent roomblock--the pecked-block and double-stone-with-core masonry styles of the roomblock wall indicate construction during the Pueblo III period (A.D. 1150-1300).
Dating of Remodeling
