IDENTIFICATION OF CHARCOAL FROM SITE CA-SDI-13, 037/H LOCUS B, NORTHERN SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (2004)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman.

Three charcoal samples from site CA-SDI-13, 037/H Locus B were submitted for identification. This site lies within the San Dieguito River Valley in northern San Diego County. Charcoal samples were identified prior to submission for radiocarbon analysis to determine the best material to send for dating.


PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS AT THE CASE SPRING SITE (CA-SDI-5138 AND CA-SDI-5139), CAMP PENDLETON, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (1996)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings.

Phytoliths were examined from stratigraphic samples collected at two sites (CA-SDI-5138 and CA-SD-5139) at Camp Pendleton. The stratigraphic samples were examined for phytoliths to enhance the paleoenvironmental reconstruction in this area.


PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF A METATE FROM THE SPRING CANYON PROJECT, SITE CA-SDI-16,397 (2004)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings.

The Spring Canyon Site (CA-SDI-16,397) is located in southern San Diego County adjacent to the United States/Mexico border. Radiocarbon ages ranging from 6030 +/- 40 BP to 2060 +/- 60 BP are returned on either charcoal or bulk sediments from the site. This Archaic temporary camp appears to have been used for lithic production and marine and non-marine resource processing. A single metate and its associated soil control sample were examined for phytoliths and starches in an effort to...


POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR THE HERON SITE (CA-SDI-14,152), SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (1996)

DOCUMENT Thomas E. Moutoux. Linda Scott Cummings.

Pollen and phytolith analysis on a single sediment sample from the Heron Site (CA-SDI- 14,152) was undertaken in an effort to gain insight into the local environment in which the paleoinhabitants lived. The site is located along the San Diego River in San Diego county, California, and is believed to be Late Prehistoric.


POLLEN AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF A LARGE BASIN METATE FROM SITE CA-SDI-295, WOODS VALLEY RANCH PROJECT, CALIFORNIA (2002)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings.

A large basin metate was discovered during mass grading at site CA-SDI-295 for the Woods Valley Ranch project in northern San Diego County, California. Woods Valley Ranch is a proposed residential and golf course community with surrounding natural open space easements. Large scrapers were used to transport soils from the northwest portion of the site to another portion of the project area, and the metate was found in the resulting spoils pile. Site CA-SDI-295 is a prehistoric residential camp...


POLLEN AND STARCH ANALYSIS OF GROUNDSTONE, MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF SOIL SAMPLES, AND PROTEIN ANALYSIS OF LITHIC ARTIFACTS FROM CA-SDI-1313/14791, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (2012)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings. Kathryn Puseman. Chad Yost.

Groundstone tools from excavation units at site CA-SDI-1313/14791 on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in northern San Diego County, southern California, were washed to recover pollen and starches derived from processing activities. Various levels of unit fill were floated to recover macrofloral remains from subsistence activities, while three lithic tools were submitted for protein residue analysis to determine plant or animal resources that were processed with these tools. This site contains a...


POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS AT SITE CA-SDI-12557, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (1996)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings. Thomas E. Moutoux.

Pollen, phytolith, macrofloral, and protein residue analyses were performed on soil samples and artifacts from Site CA-SDI-12557 in San Diego County, California. Four pollen control samples were collected from a stratigraphic column east of the site in an area that is believed not to have been cultivated. The remaining pollen sample and two macrofloral columns were recovered from a large living area feature. Twelve phytolith samples and two macrofloral columns were collected from units...


POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS AT SITE CA-SDI-12557, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (1995)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings. Thomas E. Moutoux.

Pollen, phytolith, macrofloral, and protein residue analyses were performed on soil samples and artifacts from Site CA-SDI-12557 in San Diego County, California. Four pollen control samples were collected from a stratigraphic column east of the site in an area that is believed not to have been cultivated. The remaining pollen sample and two macrofloral columns were recovered from a large living area feature. Twelve phytolith samples and two macrofloral columns were collected from units...


POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS FOR THE SCRIPPS POWAY PARKWAY EAST PROJECT (CA-SDI-4608), SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (1996)

DOCUMENT Thomas E. Moutoux. Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings.

Archaeological samples from Loci Band C of the Scripps Poway Parkway east project (Site CA-SDI-4608) were analyzed for pollen, phytoliths, starches, macrofloral remains, and/or possible protein residues. This site contains multiple cultural components ranging from Paleo Indian through Late Prehistoric. The majority of the analyses focused on artifact utilization (i.e. artifact washes and associated soil control samples), in an effort to better understand not only functional differences...


POLLEN, PHYTOLlTH, MACROFLORAL, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF ARTIFACTS FROM SITES FOR THE RANCHO SAN MIGUEL PROJECT, CALIFORNIA (1999)

DOCUMENT Curtis Nepstad-Thornberry. Linda Scott Cummings. Kathryn Puseman.

Artifacts from three sites in the Rancho San Miguel Project in San Diego County, southern California, were analyzed for evidence of pollen, phytoliths, and protein residues. Results were compared with findings in associated soil samples. Unit fill also was floated to recover charred macrofloral remains. The project area is located on the first low foothills rising above the coastal plain at the edge of a major seasonal drainage as it descends to the lower elevations. Pollen, phytolith, and...


POLLEN, STARCH, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF GROUNDSTONE FROM SITES CA-SDI-7199 AND CA-SDI-7976, SOUTHERN SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (2002)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings. Thomas E. Moutoux.

A mano fragment and a metate fragment from Site CA-SD 1-7199 for the Salt Creek Ranch Project, as well as an overturned metate from Site CA-SDI-7976 for the Eastlake III Woods Project, were examined for pollen, starch, and possible protein residues. Both sites are believed to be Late Archaic temporary processing sites in southern San Diego County. Pollen, starch, and protein residue analyses are used to provide information concerning plant and possible animal resources processed using these...


PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF A FLUTED POINT FROM THE BOG SITE, CA-SDI-2506, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (2006)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman. Jaime Dexter.

A single obsidian fluted point and an associated soil control from the Bog Site, CA-SDI-2506, in the Lost Valley area in northeastern San Diego County, California, were tested for possible protein residues. Although the site has been culturally affiliated with a seasonal camp of the late prehistoric and protohistoric Cupeno People and possibly the Mountain Cahuilla, the fluted point is believed to represent the early Holocene Clovis Culture approximately 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. Obsidian...


PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF LITHIC ARTIFACTS FROM SITE CA-SDI-14,808 (1999)

DOCUMENT Kathryn Puseman.

Five small arrow points from prehistoric Site CA-SDI-14,808 in San Diego County, California were analyzed for possible protein residues. This site is believed to represent a Late Prehistoric occupation. Protein residue analysis was undertaken to determine if these points were used to hunt any of the animal species represented by the available antisera.
