067W

Room 67W is an original Chacoan room located behind the Tower Kiva (Room 64W), in the central sector of Salmon Pueblo. It measures 7.3 x 2.9 m. It was built during the Chacoan occupation around 1090. Twenty-five strata were identified in 67W including mixed Chacoan and San Juan layers, several roof fall layers, post-occupational fill, structured trash, feature-specific strata, and a floor. In all, 35 features were found in 67W. Features included vigas and latillas, doorways, vent windows, and a pit. Tree ring dates indicate construction of 67W around 1090, during the Chacoan era. The lack of floor features suggests a storage function for this room. Stratigraphic data and ceramic frequencies suggest continued usage into the 1280s.
