A mano recovered from the Big Stay site (48CA1420) in Campbell County, Wyoming was submitted for organic residue analysis. Organic residues were examined using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, AND STARCH ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITE 48CR9599, CARBON COUNTY, WYOMING (2015)
Located on a highly undulating plain, amid interfluvial ridges and broad, shallow valleys, Site 48CR9599 represents a small prehistoric camp situated at the toe of a low, sand-covered hill in the Washakie Basin. Identified through 2009 WFS Coal Bank 5-50 pipeline monitoring, Site 48CR9599 lies between Sugarloaf Butte and Coal Bank Draw, demonstrating charcoal stained sediment dating to 1290 ± 40 BP, the Late Prehistoric Uinta phase. Subsequent testing identified six hearth features (Jan...
POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, PROTEIN RESIDUE (CIEP), MACROFLORAL, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITES CA-SDI-21240 AND CA-SDI-21805, CAMP PENDLETON, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (2018)
Sites CA-SDI-21240 and CA-SDI-21805 are located on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in northern San Diego County, California. Cultural deposits at both sites contain marine shell and animal bones, as well as flaked stone and groundstone tools (Tanya Wahoff, personal communication April 26, 2018). Various artifacts collected from both sites were submitted for protein residue, pollen, and phytolith analysis. Soil control samples associated with artifacts also were provided. Macrofloral analysis...
POLLEN, STARCH, AND XRF ANALYSIS FROM SITE 5LA9555, LAS ANIMAS COUNTY, COLORADO (2018)
A sandstone mano, recovered from Shelter C in the Trinchera Cave Archaeological District, was submitted for pollen and starch analysis to determine its use. A small concentration of blue pigment observed on the mano surface was the subject of X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analysis.

STARCH, PROTEIN, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITE 5MF3006, MOFFAT COUNTY, COLORADO (2010)
Site 5MF3006, located in Moffat County, yielded numerous manos and metates, indicating that grinding starchy food was important to the occupants of this site. Sampling focus was on groundstone and control samples related to these groundstone. Analyses selected for identifying food processing include starch, protein residue, and FTIR.
