Structure 25-S, masonry surface structure

About this Structure

General Location

Northeast corner of pueblo. Part of rim complex; located at base of cliff.

Specific Location

Built in small alcove; west of Structure 26-S and north of Structure 23-S.

Interpretive Type

Not assigned.

Structure Use

Room that is part of a small group of masonry rooms. The small size of this room and its location in a small alcove suggest it was used as a storage facility. However, sooting on the east wall suggests that a thermal feature may have been present and the room may have been used as a living/work space. Direct access, via a doorway (Feature 1), existed between this room and the room to the south (Structure 23-S).

Abandonment

No evidence.

Postabandonment

Visible walls have partly collapsed.

Excavation Details

No excavations took place inside this structure.
