Earl Morris’ description of Room 159 at the time of excavation is as follows. “All walls of Room 159 had been dismantled down to within 1 foot 8 inches of the floor. There was a hard-tramped court level over the entire area so that during the latter phases of the occupation of the ruin, no trace of this chamber would have been visible. The east and west walls were of stick and mud construction and the north of sandstone masonry. ….[T]he chamber was divided into a long southern section, 4 feet by 12 feet 4 inches, and two bins, the eastern one, 5 feet 2 inches by 6 feet 3 inches, the western, 4 feet by 5 feet 8 inches. Burials 79 and 80 were in the western bin. Refuse filled the other portions of the room from floor to court level. …. Built up against the east side of the room were two sandstone bins …. The north end of the east wall of Room 159 was built against a handsomely constructed masonry corner which contains the bands of black-green stone visible in several walls near the southwest corner of the west wing….” (Morris 1928: 287-288) Reference: Earl Morris, 1928, Notes on Excavations in the Aztec Ruin, Volume XXVI, Part V, Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History, New York.
