094W

Room 94W is a medium-sized San Juan kiva located in the central sector of Salmon Pueblo. It measures 4.2 m in diameter. Thirteen strata were identified in 94W, including post-occupational fill, roof-fall, occupational fill, feature-specific strata, and a kiva floor complex. Rooms 94A-C refer to the interstitial spaces between the kiva and the enclosing walls. The floor contained a suite of features and artifacts. Eight features were associated with 94W including a central hearth, a deflector, a bench, a ventilator system, and wall niches. No tree-ring dates were recovered but the ceramic assemblage reflects usage sometime from the mid 1100s to the late 1200s.
