ABOUT THIS NONSTRUCTURE No Data about Surfaces
No Masonry Data
General Location South part of the site.
Specific Location Just north of the north wall of the roomblock in Architectural Block 300.
Selection Criteria Encountered during excavations to expose the outside face of the north wall of each roomblock.
Use This area was used for the deposition of refuse prior to the construction of the adjacent roomblock (and Structure 305).
Abandonment This area continued to be used for the deposition of refuse after the roomblock was constructed (but the provenience of that material is Nonstructure 306).
Postabandonment Processes Additional refuse accumulated above the surface associated with the roomblock.
Dating of Midden This 70-cm-thick deposit of refuse contained Pueblo II and Pueblo III sherds. The presence of Mesa Verde Black-on-white pottery in the lowermost stratum of this refuse indicates that most, if not all, of these artifacts were deposited sometime after A.D. 1180.
Date Range 4 (A.D. 1150–1300)
