Structure 1505, masonry surface structure

STRUCTURE DATING

Abandonment
The absence of trash in the fill suggests that abandonment occurred at the same time as the rest of the block--sometime after A.D. 1270.
Construction
One tree-ring date for this structure--A.D. 1146vv. This date is not consistent with the other tree-ring dates for the bi-wall rooms in this block (that appear to all have been built around the same time), so this date is inferred to be from a reused beam. The bi-wall room adjacent to the south (Structure 1503) is tree-ring dated to A.D. 1260. Structure 1505 was probably built sometime around or after A.D. 1260.
Remodeling
Doorway in the north wall was blocked; there are no means to date this event.
Reuse
No evidence of reuse.
Date Range
