DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

Site 42WS1220 is an open campsite located in the Saint George Basin, Washington County, Utah. The site is situated on three active dunes along the eastern side of Cottonwood Wash with Interstate 15 north-bound lanes running through it. The site produced multiple features, lithics, ground stones, and ceramics dating between the Archaic period and the Puebloan and South Pauite periods (Aaron Woods, personal communication, November 14, 2018). Two thermal feature fill sediments were submitted for...

Pollen, protein and macrofloral analyses will be used to provide subsistence information concerning plant resources utilized by the various occupants of these...


POLLEN, MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN RESIDUE, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES OF ARTIFACTS AND SOIL SAMPLES FROM SITES 42KA4478 AND 42KA6293, KANE COUNTY, UTAH (2008)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings. Chad Yost.

Sites 42Ka4478 and 42Ka6293 are prehistoric Virgin Anasazi occupations located north of Kanab, Utah, and east of Kanab Creek. Radiocarbon dates of 1570 ± 40 BP and 1670 ± 40 BP from 42Ka4478 reflect a Basketmaker occupation, while the presence of decorated ceramics and radiocarbon dates from corn cobs of 1340 ± 40 BP and 1170 ± 40 BP at 42Ka6293 indicate a Pueblo I association. Samples from features at sites 42Ka4478 and 42Ka6293 were examined for pollen and/or macrofloral remains to provide...


POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN RESIDUE, FTIR ANALYSIS, AND AMS DATING FOR 24GA416 (REAS PASS SITE) AND POLLEN, PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING FOR 24GA493 (HORSE BUTTE PENINSULA SITE), MONTANA (2008)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings. Chad Yost. Kathryn Puseman.

Sites 24GA416 (Reas Pass Site) and 24GA493 (Horse Butte Peninsula) and are located in Gallatin County, southwestern Montana. Excavations of these sites is part of an on-going effort to re-license the Hebgen Reservoir development along the Madison River near West Yellowstone. Pollen analysis was conducted on samples collected stratigraphically from both sites to provide paleoenvironmental information. Naturally occurring charcoal from columns at both sites also were AMS radiocarbon dated. In...


POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF SAMPLES FROM SITES 24LN202 AND 24LN2210, LINCOLN COUNTY, MONTANA (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings. Chad Yost. Kathryn Puseman. Melissa K. Logan.

Samples from sites 24LN202 and 24LN2210, Lincoln County, Montana, were submitted for pollen, phytolith, macrofloral, protein, and organic residue analysis, and AMS radiocarbon dating. Samples were tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). The goal of these analyses is to better understand the function of several cultural features, determine if other features are of cultural or geologic origins, and to identify some of the plants and animals that may have...


POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) AND AMS RADIOCARBON ANALYSIS OF FEATURE FILL, CERAMIC, LITHIC ARTIFACTS AND CHARCOAL FROM SITES LA 132116, LA 149259, LA 149260, LA 149266, LA 149268, LA 149274, LA 149279, AND LA 149284, EDDY COUNTY, NEW MEXICO (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings. Chad Yost. Kathryn Puseman. Melissa K. Logan.

Feature fill, ceramic and lithic artifacts, and charcoal from eight sites (LA 132116, LA 149259, LA 149260, LA 149266, LA 149268, LA 149274, LA 149279, and LA 149284), in Eddy County, New Mexico were submitted for pollen, phytolith, and organic residue analysis, and AMS radiocarbon dating. Pollen and phytolith analysis was performed on feature fill and sediment samples, as well as fill recovered from a ceramic vessel. Feature fill associated with this vessel was examined for charcoal, which was...


POLLEN, STARCH, MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN RESIDUE, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES AT SITE CA-SDI-4281, CALIFORNIA (2008)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings. Kathryn Puseman. Chad Yost.

Samples from the fill of fire-altered rock and shell features at Site CA-SDI-4281 in southern California near the Mexican border were examined for pollen, starches, and macrofloral remains. In addition, pollen/starch samples were recovered from a column through a single 120 cm deep unit. Three groundstone and three projectile points were analyzed for the presence of protein and organic residues, the latter using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Conventional radiocarbon dates...


PROTEIN AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM CULP CANYON AND THE SOUTHERN SACRAMENTO MOUNTAINS, FORT BLISS MILITARY INSTALLATION, TEXAS (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Melissa K. Logan. Chad Yost.

Three projectile points and five feature fill samples were submitted for protein and organic residue analysis, respectively. The feature fill samples were tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Residue analysis should provide information on subsistence, including materials processed, and possible functions of the artifacts and features, as well as shed light on group mobility.

Site 32OL0510 is situated on a small ridge above minor, meandering tributary creeks of Square Butte Creek, approximately 3.5 km west of the town of Center in Oliver County, North Dakota. Three prehistoric stone circle features and associated lithic tools comprise the site. Ethnoscience, Inc., submitted four lithic samples recovered from the site to PaleoResearch Institute for protein residue (CIEP) analysis. Additionally, four sediment samples were collected—two from the center of the features...
