About this Structure

General Location

In the great tower complex.

Specific Location

14 m south-southeast of the great tower bi-wall structure.

Interpretive Type

Structure Use

Few data on which to base an interpretation of use. This is one of few of the tested structures in this architectural block that did not have kiva-style architecture. It appears to have been a large, rectangular room. No features were exposed. This room was formed when at least one wall was dismantled in order to create a larger room. Structure 1215 was one of the smaller rooms that was destroyed in order to create a bigger room.

Abandonment

Prior excavation destroyed evidence of abandonment events.

Postabandonment

Structure was excavated and backfilled during a Western State College field school in 1931.
