Structure 906, earth-walled pit structure

STRUCTURE DATING

Abandonment
This structure was abandoned in the Early Pueblo III period. This inference is based on the presence of McElmo Black-on-white sherds in the roof sediments of Structure 906. Nonstructure 901 refuse was deposited over Structure 906.
Construction
Based on architectural characteristics (earthen walls), mode of abandonment (recycled roof), the absence of surface rooms to the north of this structure, and pottery data, Structure 906 was most likely constructed in the Late Pueblo II period. There was one tree-ring sample collected from the roof of Structure 906 but it did not date.
Remodeling
None evident.
Reuse
Secondary refuse (Nonstructure 901) was deposited into this structure during the Late Pueblo II through Early Pueblo III period.
