Image: AZRU8-2725A: fragment of cotton plain-weave cloth with intact side selvage. Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room 128-2, Aztec West Ruin. Earl Morris’ description of Room 128-2 at the time of excavation is as follows: “At [the center of the floor] was a sandstone-lined fire pit 1 ½ feet in diameter and 5 inches deep. The south third of the room was separated from the rest by a thin partition built directly above the south pair of floor supports. A metate was in place against and parallel to the east wall, with room for the miller to kneel behind it in the northeast corner. The lip of the metate was flush with the floor and surrounded by a grist basin formed by walling the sides of a shallow pit with stones set on end…There are two niches in the north wall…” (Morris 1928:367).
