Unit 105 is a test unit excavated at Roadmap Village (LA 45157) during the 2012 field season of the Mogollon Prehistoric Landscapes Project. The unit is located in the approximate center of the small plaza. This unit placement was chosen for two reasons: (1) identify any surfaces and/or features associated with the small plaza; and (2) determine the depth of the B horizon including the clay strata observed in Units 104 and 106 located in extramural areas to the west of the small plaza. Excavations revealed at least four distinct plaster surfaces within the plaza, one of which had several posthole features and a hearth associated with it and another lower surface that was not fully exposed but had one post hole feature. The pattern of the features suggests a ramada or drying rack may have existing within the plaza during the site’s occupation. The hearth is an interesting feature due to its location within a plaza and the characteristics it shares with two other hearths excavated within rooms at Roadmap Village.
