Masonry Details
General Location Central part of the site.
Specific Location Just north of the roomblock in Architectural Block 700.
Selection Criteria Surface was encountered during excavations to expose a segment of the outside face of the north wall of the roomblock.
Use Outdoor use surface associated with construction and occupation of the roomblock in Architectural Block 700
Abandonment Abandoned as a surface when refuse was deposited on it
Postabandonment Processes Wall fall, aeolian, and alluvial sediments accumulated above the refuse
Dating of Construction Pecked-block masonry style of the structure that rests on this surface (Structure 706) suggests use during the Pueblo III period (A.D. 1150-1300).
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment No sherds were associated with this surface or below this surface (the surface is undisturbed native sediment). However, the presence of Mesa Verde Black-on-white pottery in the stratum just above this surface leads to the inference that the surface was not abandoned much before A.D. 1180, and might have been abandoned any time after that.
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
Date range 2 (A.D. 1100–1225)
