Structure Use

Structure 141 is similar to other subterranean rooms constructed in the Pueblo I period and was probably used for domestic activities. The presence of multiple jar and bowl sherds on the structure floor, as well as a modified flake, indicates a domestic use. The presence of a corner bin (Feature 1) also indicates a domestic use of the structure and may have been used for storage.

Abandonment

Structure 141 was most likely abandoned in the Pueblo I period.

Postabandonment

Natural sediments accumulated above the collapsed roof. The upper portion of the natural sediments were disturbed by plowing.
