Chicanna, Group A  Structure II

Chicanna: Group A, Structure II [February 18, 1997]

"The masonry of this building is similar to that of Structure I and seems to be within the same basic tradition. The foundation walls are set directly on bedrock, forming enclosures filled with dry-laid gravel, topped off with a good hard-plaster flooring. The walls of the superstructure rest upon these foundations; thus, the terrace consists of nothing more than external retaining walls filled to below-room floor level with dry-laid gravel and finished with a plaster flooring."
