About this Structure

Structure Use

Few data; structure not excavated. This was the lower story of a structure that was originally at least two stories tall. This tower was probably the only access to the one or more structures on top of the adjacent boulder. No data as to the specific use of this room; could have been used for domestic purposes, storage, defense, or some combination of these.

Abandonment

No specific data; abandonment of this structure is thought to have occurred as a result of an attack in which many of the villagers were killed and that ended the occupation of the village.

Postabandonment

No data; processes appear to have been natural deterioration and vandalism.
