Nonstructure 238, midden
About this Nonstructure
South-central portion of the site.
Nonstructure 238 is about 8 m north of Structure 205-226 and overlays activity area Nonstructure 241.
A 3-x-1 excavation unit was excavated to investigate an electrical resistivity anomoly.
Nonstructure 238 is a midden deposit.
Arbitrary 219 was deposited over Nonstructure 238 through natural processes (wind and water).
Dating of Midden
Deposited after after activity area Nonstructure 241 (A.D. 547-655) fell out of use during the Basketmaker III period.
4 (A.D. 600725)
Excavation Details for Excavation Units
In order by excavation unit number.
1-x-3 meter grid unit, long axis oriented north-south 1384N 486E.
Southwest quarter of the site.
Located in the northwest quarter of Block 200, approximately 12 m north of Structure 205.
Judgmental. This unit was selected in order to test an area where a remote sensing anomaly was present.
Strata subdivided into arbitrary levels. Strata were divided into arbitrary 25-cm levels when applicable.
Unit Ends at
Undisturbed native sediment. Excavation ended on the prehistoric ground surface (Nonstructure 241) at an elevation of approximately 99.30 m. Features 1-6 were dug into an upper use surface.
