Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room 49, Aztec West Ruin. Morris (1928:306) indicates that “The initial 3 to 5 feet of fill in Room 49 was of refuse, mostly ashes, deepest against the east wall near the door. In it were found a red pottery disk, part of a pottery human effigy, potsherds, eleven mammal bone awls, a bird bone awl…[long list of artifacts]…Above the refuse were the timbers of the fallen ceiling. The latter had consisted of two pairs of pine timbers crossing the shorter dimension of the room and dividing its area into thirds. Above them, laid in the opposite direction, had been peeled poles 2 to 3 inches in diameter, then a layer of cedar splints, an inch of adobe, a covering of cedarbark, and finally several inches of clean earth, the top of which had formed the floor of the room above. Fire had reached no portion of this ceiling. The floor at which excavations ceased is at least 2 feet 2 inches above what was ground level at the time the walls were erected. Where the floor was broken through, the fill beneath was found to contain small cobblestones carried in presumably at the time Kiva G was erected for the purpose of raising the floor level well above that of the kiva.”
