ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE
Masonry Details
General Location Central part of the site.
Specific Location Just north of the roomblock in Architectural Block 600.
Selection Criteria Surface was encountered during excavations to expose the outside face of the north wall of the roomblock.
Use Outdoor use surface associated with the construction and occupation of the roomblock in Architectural Block 600
Abandonment Abandoned when the occupation of this area ended
Postabandonment Processes Covered with cultural deposits from roomblock occupation, then with wall fall, aeolian, and alluvial sediments
Dating of Construction This surface was not constructed, but was used sometime after A.D. 1150; this inference is based on the Pueblo III construction style of the roomblock wall that rests on the surface. Mesa Verde Corrugated and Pueblo III White Painted pottery sherds are beneath this surface.
