Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room 112, Aztec West Ruin. Earl Morris’ description of Room 112 at the time of excavation is as follows. “A wash of sand, seldom more than 1 inch thick, covered the floor of Room 112. Upon it lay a stratum of partially charred vegetable refuse from 2 to 3 inches in thickness…[Explanation of artifacts]. On top of the burned refuse….was washed and blown earth 5 to 9 inches thick, packed almost as hard as stone. The ceiling of Room 112 is standing. Fire…. caught in the ceiling, but went out before it did more than blacken and check the timbers. Two pine logs, 11 inches and 1 foot in diameter, respectively, form the support. This room was one of those entered by relic hunters during the early eighties….There are open ventilators, one in each end of the north wall.” (Morris1928: 357).
