|Dating of Midden
||This 30-40 cm of refuse contained late Pueblo II and Pueblo III sherds. Pueblo III White Painted pottery is present in the lowermost, undisturbed portion of this midden, indicating that refuse began to be deposited sometime after A.D. 1100 at the earliest. The presence of Mesa Verde Black-on-white indicates that refuse was deposited until sometime after A.D. 1180.
