Stratigraphy

     Phase 3sJ2B is the period of intensive use of the monumental access. There is a sequence of multiple floors that build-up as a result of the use. The open area of the Plaza was susceptible to natural build-up which became packed into floors through usage as walking floors.

Typology

     Ceramics from the layers building up at the base of the apron are mid-EDIII in date and represent the transitional phase between EDIIIa and EDIIIb (see notes by mKB on f357 and f364)
     The recovered objects from this phase are primarily common lithic debitage.
