ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM KHOR KHARFOT, DHOFAR, OMAN (2016)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

During field excavations in February 2016, numerous stratigraphic sediment samples were collected. Three of these were selected for AMS radiocarbon analysis to include dates on both shell and organics in the form of humates (soil organic matter or SOM) or charcoal, if any could be recovered. Sufficient quantities of sediments were collected from each location to allow pollen and/or phytolith analysis, either as part of the first batch of samples examined or for examination at a later date. In...


ANALYSIS OF STRATIGRAPHIC POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH SAMPLES FROM RIO DEL OSO, NEW MEXICO (2000)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings. Thomas E. Moutoux.

Several stratigraphic columns were sampled in the cut bank at Rio del Oso to recover pollen and phytoliths that will provide a signal of regional and local vegetation through time. This vegetation is expected to be a reflection of both natural and cultural events. Radiocarbon ages are available for many levels, providing tight dating for the stratigraphic columns. The pollen record was examined to provide evidence of changes in both regional and local vegetation, while the phytolith record was...


ANALYSIS OF TRINIDAD LAKE MACROBOTANICAL SAMPLES (1996)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

A total of 50 botanical specimens from archaeological excavations at Trinidad Lake, Colorado, were identified. Six of these samples consist of corn cob fragments that were measured, while the remaining samples represent a mixture of seeds and charcoal. Macrofloral analysis was undertaken as part of a thesis project with the hope of identifying possible native and cultivated resources utilized by the site occupants and possibly to determine the past method used to recover these samples.

DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda J. Scott.

Pollen analysis was undertaken at 48SW1242, 4b, in connection with archaeological mitigation. This site is located at an elevation of 6450 ft in the Shute Creek Drainage Basin at the extreme western edge of Sweetwater County. Three components were recorded at the site. The later two components range in age from 1550 to 2170 B.P.

BLOOD RESIDUE, PHYTOLITH, AND POLLEN ANALYSIS AT SITE 41CS151, CASS COUNTY, TEXAS (1994)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings.

Twenty-eight artifacts from Site 41CS151 in northeastern Texas were analyzed for possible blood residues. Immunological studies have shown that protein residues from a tool's surface can be identified using modified forensic procedures. In addition, a soil sample from a culturally darkened area (an apparent anthrosol) and a control sample from the modern A horizon of a column were examined for the presence of phytoliths. A groundstone fragment was washed to recover pollen from the grinding...
