Nonstructure 2.5-N, extramural surface
Northeast quadrant of site. Within rim complex on canyon rim.
East of a large tower (Structure 28) that is part of large masonry complex; rests below Nonstructure 2.4-N.
Part of Nonstructure 2-N testing; see Nonstructure 2-N and associated EU for description and explanation of testing strategy.
Outdoor natural surface associated with the construction of an extramural wall (Feature 7).
Dating of Construction
The extramural wall (Feature 7) that was built on this surface was constructed before refuse was deposited in this area; this interpretation is based upon stratigraphic position.
Dating of Remodeling
Dating of Abandonment
Abandoned before the rim complex was abandoned--refuse rests above this surface.
Dating of Midden
Dating of Reuse
No evidence of reuse.
