About this Structure

General Location

Central portion of site.

Specific Location

Central portion of Architectural Block 100; south-central portion of the great house; 489.4N 516.4E.

Living room.

Structure Use

Structure 146 was most likely a living room. This inference is based on the presence of pottery and chipped stone on the structure floor (Surface 1).

Abandonment

Structure 146 fell out of use during the Early Pueblo III period. The primary beams were removed from the roof and the remaining construction sediments and secondary beams were collapsed directly on to the structure floor.

Postabandonment

Natural wind and water sediments, as well as architectural debris, covered the roof sediments.
