DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings.

[tDAR id: 380562] The Arivaca Site (AZ DD:7:22) is located to the east of the town of Arivaca in southeastern Arizona at an elevation of 2600 feet. This site is located in a mesquite bosque, although the basin is ringed with oak wood land. Pollen samples were analyzed from the floor of Feature 1, the only structure excavated, as well as from a hearth and two pits within the structure, a single stratum within the midden, and two extramural roasting pits.Pollen analysis was clearly undertaken to identify elements...


POLLEN ANALYSIS FOR AZ 88:13:1, THE ZANARDELLI SITE, SOUTHERN ARIZONA (2004)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings. R.A. Varney.

[tDAR id: 379097] The Zanardelli site (AZ 88:13:1) is a large Classic period site located on the east side of the Santa Cruz River. Composite floor samples were collected to observe the types of pollen deposited inside the structures. Although the original research design was oriented towards comparison of results from several phases within the Classic occupation, final assignment of occupation for the structures represented by pollen samples does not provide sufficient variety to note changes through time.

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings.

[tDAR id: 379030] Site AZ EE:9:174, situated along the Santa Cruz River slightly north of the international border between Mexico and Arizona, exhibited several structures and at least one deep, bellshaped, extramural pit. Four pollen samples were selected as composite floor samples from structures to identify pollen representing plants growing in the vicinity of these sites during occupation and also to represent any plants processed in the structures. In addition, a fifth sample, from a large, deep,...


POLLEN ANALYSIS FOR SECHIN ALTO AND TAUKACHI-KONKAN, CASMA VALLEY, PERU (2002)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings.

[tDAR id: 378933] Excavations in the Casma Valley have been conducted for decades. Analysis of 20 pollen samples from the 2002 field season at Sechin Alto (C24) and Taukachi-Konkan (C23) reflects a very small portion of the efforts, thus far, to understand the lives of people living in this area. Evidence of Initial Period occupation was recovered. Pollen analysis was undertaken to provide additional information about the local vegetation and plant use than has been visible from the very extensive...


POLLEN ANALYSIS FOR THE JULIAN WASH SITE (AZ BB:13:17), TUCSON, ARIZONA (2003)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings. R.A. Varney.

[tDAR id: 379047] The Julian Wash Site (AZ BB:13:17) is located at the I-10/I-19 interchange in Tucson, Arizona. Approximately 87 prehistoric pit structures or possible pit structures, as well as over 100 other pits of various types were noted ranging in age from the Early Agricultural period (3000 B.C. to A.D. 150) to the Tanque Verde phase (A.D. 1150 to 1300). A small historic component also was noted. Pollen analysis focused on examination of floor samples from pit structures in an effort to identify...

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings.

[tDAR id: 379109] Pollen, macrofloral, botanic, and protein residue samples were examined from site 42WS2227 in southwest Utah, representing a large, intensively looted Anasazi Pueblo with an estimated Pueblo II occupation. Samples were submitted from two separate testing areas. Samples from Test Area #1 (Feature 4) on the west side of the road were associated with an adobe floor. Test Area #2 (Feature 9) in a disturbed/vandalized area east of the road contained an adobe-floored structure, a possible...


POLLEN, STARCH, AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT SITE 5LA6493, COLORADO (2006)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings. Kathryn Puseman.

[tDAR id: 379350] Site 5LA6493 in the Comanche National Grasslands of southeastern Colorado consists of a room block with six rooms. Charcoal from three of the rooms yielded conventional radiocarbon ages of 990 ± 40 BP (Room 1), 1080 ± 40 BP (Room 2) and 1090 ± 40 BP (Room 5). Various samples have been submitted at different times for analysis. This report is a compilation of the work done at these various times. Five pollen and three macrofloral samples were submitted and examined in 2005. Soil samples...
