Structure 1413, subterranean room

About this Structure

General Location

Northeastern portion of site.

Specific Location

North-central portion of Block 1400.

Interpretive Type

Unknown.

Structure Use

Due to the absence of floor artifacts and that the test units did not uncover any floor features, the function of Structure 1413 is unknown. It probably served as a storage space or a place to perform domestic activities.

Abandonment

Based on pottery data and tree-ring data, Structure 1413 was abandoned in the late Pueblo III period immediately prior to regional migration. Natural wind and water laminations accumulated on the floor surface prior to the roof collapsing.

Postabandonment

Natural wind and water laminations accumulated on the floor surface prior to the roof collapsing.
