Structure 123, masonry surface structure

About this Structure

General Location

South face of butte.

Specific Location

Grid northeast of Structure 117.

Interpretive Type

Storage room.

Structure Use

Inferred to have been a storage room on the basis of small size, lack of floor features, and location sandwiched between a living room in front and the irregular butte face behind.

Abandonment

Incidental refuse left on floor, no defacto refuse. The room was abandoned in a leisurely way, with time to take usable items. Or, usable items were scavenged after occupation of the village ended. Occupation ended as the result of an attack that caused the deaths of many villagers.

Postabandonment

Natural wall collapse and filling.
