EMAP – LA3949 Unit 30 writeup 2017

Year: 2004


Unit 30 was a rectangular room (5.6 x 4.3 = 24.1 square meters) in the West Side section of the Postclassic pueblo at Las Animas Village. Although it shared a wall with a two-story room (Unit 4), there is no evidence that Unit 30 had more than one story. There is, however, good evidence that the room (floor and features) was remodeled several times. The substantial roof was probably used as a work surface; several whole manos and partial metates were found in association with this surface. Unit 30’s size and the presence of two hearths indicate that Unit 30 was used for habitation. The adobe room was built over a much earlier pit house, and a layer of probably later fill separated the pithouse from the adobe construction. No chronometric dates were obtained from Unit 30.
