Nonstructure 2.9-N, extramural surface
Northeast quadrant of site. Within rim complex on canyon rim.
North edge of rim complex; grid northeast of a large masonry complex that includes Structures 28 and 29.
Part of Nonstructure 2-N testing; see Nonstructure 2-N and associated EU for description and explanation of testing strategy.
Semi-altered natural surface associated with the construction of two walls (Feature 6 and Feature 9).
Probably abandoned as part of the abandonment of the rim complex.
Covered by postoccupational wall fall and natural deposits.
Dating of Construction
Dating of Remodeling
No evidence of remodeling.
Dating of Abandonment
Probably abandoned at the same time the rim complex was abandoned, as there are no later cultural deposits above this surface.
Dating of Reuse
No evidence of reuse.

Excavation Details for Excavation Units
In order by excavation unit number.
Segment 4 N E.
Northeast corner of pueblo; rim complex.
North boundary of Nonstructure 2, northeast of large masonry complex that includes a tower (Structure 29), a kiva (Structure 6) and rooms, including Strucutre 29; unit extends across section of wall that encloses the rim complex.
Judgmental. Opened to examine a wall that encloses Nonstructure 2, a possible arc-shaped feature attached to the exterior of the enclosing wall, and a cross wall that may connect the enclosing wall and tower complex.
Strata subdivided into arbitrary levels.
Unit Ends at
Undisturbed native sediment. Excavation unit was divided into three subunits when walls were exposed; sterile was reached in three subunits.
