ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
Masonry Details
General Location Central part of the site.
Specific Location Just north of the roomblock in Architectural Block 500.
Selection Criteria Encountered during excavations to expose the outside face of the north wall of the roomblock.
Use Outdoor use surface associated with the earliest occupation in this area, prior to the construction of the Architectural Block 500 roomblock.
Abandonment Surface no longer used after sediment was deposited on top of it.
Postabandonment Processes Covered first by sediment, then by the use surface associated with Structure 508, and then by subsequent deposits (see stratigraphic profile description).
Dating of Construction Surface was not constructed.
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment Surface was abandoned an unknown length of time after A.D. 1100; this inference is based on the association of Pueblo III White Painted and Mesa Verde Corrugated pottery with this surface.
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
Date range 3 (A.D. 1100–1300)
