Structure 110, subterranean kiva
About this Structure
West-central portion of site.
Northwestern portion of Architectural Block 100; 490.8N 482E.
Structure 110 is similar to other kivas occupied during the Late Pueblo II and Early Pueblo III periods and was most likely used in a combination of domestic and ritual activities. A mug was left on the bench surface at abandonment. The presence of the mug indicates a domestic use of the structure. The presence of a hearth (Feature 2) further indicates a domestic use of the structure and would have been used for light, heat, and food preparation.
Structure 110 was intentionally burned at abandonment. The burned wood and sediments collapsed directly on the floor surface.
Natural wind and water sediments accumulated over the collapsed burned roof sediments.
