9: Located on the edge of the plaza and excavated to test a radar
anomaly. The anomaly turned out to be a shallow feature, but a deeper
deposit was found in excavation that may be part of a large pit. This
area will be explored further.
Jocelyn Turner and Rexford Garniewicz excavating block 9 which is in the
drawing a wall profile for Block 9.
Excavated to “ground truth” a large, rectangular
GPR anomaly which suggested a house basin. The anomaly is indeed the remains
of a house, a burned structure that had been built in a shallow basin.
The radar anomaly
is a high signal reflection area that shows as a dark
blue rectangle located north of the driveway in the map.
The feature indicated probably extends under the driveway.

which exposed the basin of the burned house.
Exposed house basin,
The house basin’s location closely matched the dark blue radar anomaly.
