Summary

Project 560-024 includes three sites on Fort Bliss, New Mexico. Samples from the fill of

a roaster and two pithouses were submitted for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS)

radiocarbon dating, Fourier Transform infrared spectrometry (FTIR), and X-Ray Fluorescence

(XRF) analysis. The sites are expected to represent Early Formative (AD 200-1100) Jornada

Mogollon occupations, based on artifact assemblages. In addition, samples from the two

pithouses (sites FB 5820 and FB 5843) were examined for possible protein residues. Pollen

analysis was conducted on the pithouse floor fill at FB 5843 to provide information concerning

possible plant resources processed in this structure.
