About this Structure

General Location

Adjacent to south face of butte.

Specific Location

6 m north of Structure 104.

Interpretive Type

Storage room.

Structure Use

Inferred to have been a storage room because--(1) room is sandwiched between the butte face and contiguous rooms to south; (2) contains a sloped and terraced floor; (3) contains no floor features.

Abandonment

Absence of floor artifacts suggests a planned structure abandonment. Or, materials could have been removed by others after occupation of the village ended.

Postabandonment

Roof beams might have been removed. Room filled naturally.
