Nonstructure 902, extramural surface
North part of the site.
Just north of roomblock in Architectural Block 900.
Surface was encountered during excavations to expose a segment of the outside face of the north wall of this roomblock.
Outdoor use surface associated with the construction and occupation of the roomblock in Architectural Block 900
Abandoned when the occupation of this area ended
Covered with cultural deposits from occupation, wall fall, and naturally deposited sediments
Dating of Construction
Surface was probably not intentionally constructed, but was used sometime after A.D. 1100. This inference is based on the location of this surface above the top of the fill of an adjacent pit structure (Structure 903); Pueblo III White Painted pottery is on the floor of that structure.
Dating of Abandonment
This surface was abandoned an unknown length of time after A.D. 1100. This inference is based on the location of this surface above the top of the fill of an adjacent pit structure (Structure 903); Pueblo III White Painted pottery is on the floor of that structure.
