Part of Nonstructure 2-N testing; see Nonstructure 2-N and associated EU for description and explanation of testing strategy.
Extramural surface associated with the constuction of a wall (Feature 2).
Probably abandoned as part of the abandonment of the rim complex.

The types of pottery sherds found in the subfloor constructional fill indicate the surface was built between A.D. 900 and 1300.
