136W

Room 136W is a San Juan period shallow cobble-and-adobe room located in Salmon's plaza east of the Great Kiva (Room 130W). Room 136W measures 3.9 x 1.9 m. The room was completely excavated. Nine strata were defined including trash deposits, floors, and feature strata. Three features, including two pit features and a cobble concentration, were associated with 136W. Room 136W was probably built to house a family that could not find space within the main pueblo. It postdates Chacoan construction and use of the site but lower deposits in the room (136Z) contained Chacoan pottery. perhaps 1110-1120, and then continued in use until the late 1100s or 1200s.
