Feature 139 is a large, rectangular basin located in the southeastern quadrant of the Miami Circle, near the eastern side of the Circle’s arc. It was severely damaged by the footing trench. The walls are vertical, with vertical tool marks evident in some areas. At least three small holes were found in the bottom of this feature. Dissolution of the limestone in this area also has impacted Feature 139. Midden fill from this feature contained animal bone, marine shell, limestone cobbles and concreted midden, and a few ceramic sherds.
