Structure 21-S, masonry surface structure
About this Structure
Northeast corner of pueblo. Part of rim complex; located at base of cliff.
West of Structure 13-S, directly above Structure 11-S.
Upper-story room that is part of a small group of multistory rooms; room function unknown; a doorway (Feature 1) exists in the east wall and allowed access between this room and a kiva/courtyard (Structure 13-S); when someone exited the room from the doorway, they most likely stepped onto the roof of the kiva; this room may have also provided access to a small structure (Structure 12-S) to the west.
Parts of the walls, including all of the west wall, collapsed.
No excavations took place inside this structure.
