Nonstructure 205, midden
About this Nonstructure
Southeastern portion of site.
Central portion of Architectural Block 200; in Structure 204 roof sediments; 2-x-2-m unit 437N 577E.
2-x-2-m unit judgmentally selected to test Structure 204, a pit structure identified as an anomaly during the 2001 electrical resistance survey.
Secondary refuse was deposited into Structure 204 by nearby residents during the Early Pueblo III period.
Pottery data indicates that refuse was not deposited after the Early Pueblo III period.
Nonstructure 205 deposits were mixed in with Structure 204 roof sediments. The midden and roof sediments were covered by natural sediments and Nonstructure 203 midden deposits.
