About this Nonstructure
West-central portion of site.
Central portion of Architectural Block 100; below Structure 128 and Nonstructure 199; 489.8N 504.2E.
1-x-2-m unit judgmentally placed to test Structure 128, a masonry surface room.
Nonstructure 179 is an extramural surface from which a posthole was excavated. It is unclear if Nonstructure 179 was part of a larger structure.
Nonstructure 179 fell out of use when Nonstructure 199 refuse was deposited in the Late Pueblo II or Early Pueblo III periods.
Nonstructure 199 refuse covered Nonstructure 179.
Dating of Construction
Nonstructure 179 most likely dates from the Late Pueblo II or Early Pueblo III period. This inference is based on refuse deposits (Nonstructure 165, a Late Pueblo II or Early Pueblo III deposit) into which a posthole, Feature 1, was excavated. The posthole was covered with Nonstructure 199 refuse which dates to the Late Pueblo II or Early Pueblo III period as well.
