About this Nonstructure

No Surface
No Masonry

General Location

Northwestern portion of site.

Specific Location

North-central portion of Block 1100; southeast of Structure 1113; within 2-x-2-m units 674N 369.7E and 672N 371.1E.

Selection Criteria

2-x-2-m units placed southeast of Structure 1113 to sample associated midden deposits; uncovered Nonstructure 1115, cultural deposit, type unknown.

Use

Some disposal of refuse, but not as dense as a midden deposit. Refuse probably originated by residents from a nearby roomblock.

Abandonment

This area was no longer used for refuse disposal after the early Pueblo III period.
