Structure 1525, masonry surface structure

About this Structure

General Location

Block 1500, west-central portion of site, east of plaza.

Specific Location

This is the inferred upper story to Structure 1505, located on the west side of the D-shaped building. The presence of this structure is inferred on the basis of the presence of a ledge or "inset" in the west wall of Structure 1505; the ledge was assumed to indicate a break between the lower and upper stories.

Interpretive Type

Not assigned.

Structure Use

There are few data on which to base an interpretation of use of this inferred structure. This room, if it existed, is unusual in that it is located in a bi-wall structure. No features are associated with this structure. Artifacts in the roof fall of Structure 1505 (the room directly beneath this structure) might have been on the floor of Structure 1525, and include many sherds, and a variety of stone tools and general debris.


Abandonment is inferred to have been leisurely--the same manner as for the room below (Structure 1505).


Evidence of postabandonment events has been churned in recent times by pothunters and animals.
