Nonstructure 4.4-N, extramural surface
About this Nonstructure
Lower west side; base of talus slope near canyon bottom. Immediately south of Nonstructure 1-N and southwest of Structure 1 ( a tested kiva).
Lower fill of Segment 1 (EU 51); rests below Nonstructure 4.3-N and on top of Nonstructure 4.2-N.
Part of Nonstructure 4-N testing; see Nonstructure 4-N and associated EU for description and explanation of testing strategy.
Prehistoric ground surface associated with the construction of an extramural wall (Feature 3).
Covered by secondary refuse.
Dating of Construction

North part of Nonstructure 4; roughly 2 m south of the masonry wall that defines the south boundary of the Structure 1 kiva and associated courtyard.
Judgmental. This unit was placed upslope of all the random units in Nonstructure 4 to look for thicker secondary refuse deposits.
Strata subdivided into arbitrary levels.
