127A

Room 127A is a small San Juan kiva emplaced in 127W sometime after 1200. The kiva measures 3.4 m in diameter. Nine strata were identified including structured trash, roof-fall, a floor complex, feature fill, and a pre-occupational layer. Most features and artifacts were associated with the kiva floor. Ten features were associated with kiva 127A including a central hearth, a milling bin that had collapsed from the roof of 127W, a wall niche, and a ventilator tunnel and shaft. Many of the features typically found in San Juan style kivas at Salmon -- deflector slab or wall, bench, sipapu, and pilasters -- were not present in kiva 127A.
