Structure Use

The function of Structure 166 is unknown because it was only recognized in the west profile wall. The surface room most likely functioned as a living room or a storage room in the Late Pueblo II period.

Abandonment

Structure 166 fell out of use during the Late Pueblo II 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

Structure 166 was truncated by the construction of Structure 160 in the Late Pueblo II period.
