Unit 5 is a centrally located room and is the highest in elevation of the excavated units. In 2008, we selected rooms for excavation with surface indications of long occupations, hoping to find trash fill and a high number of artifacts. Ceramics, lithics, flotation, and faunal remains were collected from the excavated rooms in order to further understand the prehistoric landscape. The rooms selected for excavation during the 2008 field season were chosen due to their proximity to the plaza, the height of the mound, and surface indications that the archaeological deposits were intact. By selecting a series of three adjacent rooms for excavation, we improved our understanding of construction sequences by observing wall bonding and abutment patterns between rooms. Unit 5 shares its east wall with Unit 7 and its north wall with Units 6 and 101.
