Five column samples recovered from midden deposits at prehistoric site CA-PLA-668 in north-central California were examined for macrofloral remains. This site contained bedrock mortars, suggesting a Late Period occupation post-dating approximately 2,000 BP. Macrofloral analysis of the midden deposits will be used to provide information concerning plant resources utilized by the site occupants.
PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR SITES LA 103049, LA 126416, AND LA 126421, QUAIL RANCH, NEW MEXICO (2007)
Three sites in the Quail Ranch Data Recovery Project were selected for phytolith analysis. A total of twelve phytolith samples were examined from hearths, roasting pits, and middens to assess local vegetation and plants that might have been cooked or roasted. These sites range in age from Middle to Late Archaic.
POLLEN, MACROFLORAL AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS AT 26CK3601, BURNT ROCK SPRINGS, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (2003)
Nine pollen, six phytolith, and six macrofloral samples were analyzed from site 26CK3601, Burnt Rock Spring Mound. Samples were recovered from undifferentiated midden fill encountered in three excavation units surrounding the spring mound. These samples were evaluated for potential local environmental information, seasonality information including seasonal rainfall patterns, changes in the vegetation community through time, and for evidence of plant domestication or plants exotic to the...
POLLEN, PHYTOLlTH, AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT THE HUECO TANKS STATE HISTORIC SITE, 41EP2, TEXAS (2003)
Pollen and macrofloral samples were collected from areas of midden deposits at the Hueco Tanks State Historic Site, 41EP2, in west Texas. The site was divided into 29 archaeological localities to provide convenient units for analysis and management. Time-diagnostic artifacts from these localities indicate that Hueco Tanks was occupied primarily during the Formative period (A.D. 200-1450), although one Paleoindian (10,000 to 6000 B.C.), several Archaic (6000 B.C. to A.D. 200), and a few...
