Postabandonment Processes Uppermost portion of the midden was mixed by recent looting activities.
Dating of Midden This midden contains both late Pueblo II sherds and Pueblo III sherds. The presence of Pueblo III White Painted sherds in the lowermost stratum indicates that people began depositing refuse in this area sometime after A.D. 1100. The presence of Mesa Verde Black-on-white sherds in the stratum just above the lowermost stratum indicates that this layer of refuse (and all of the refuse above it) was deposited sometime after A.D. 1180.
Date Range 3 (A.D. 1100–1300)
