Samples were recovered from three bell-shaped refuse pits, two block excavation units, and a burial.
MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT SITE CA-SBA-530, AN OPEN-AIR COASTAL SITE ON VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, CALIFORNIA (2003)
Samples from excavation units at site CA-SBA-530 on Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, were floated to recover macrofloral remains. This site is an open-air coastal site. Macrofloral analysis is used to provide information concerning plant resources utilized by the prehistoric occupants in this area.
MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT SWORDFISH CAVE, SITE CA-SBA-503, CALIFORNIA (2003)
Six samples from various levels of fill in two units at Swordfish Cave (CA-SBA-503) on Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, were floated to recover macrofloral remains. This site represents a cave in a small sandstone outcrop with rock art panels both inside and outside the cave. A swordfish painted in black on top of a red oval is noted to be typical of chumash illustrations. This cave experienced several use episodes during the late and terminal Early Period and the beginning of the...
MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT THE COMBAR ROAD SITES, VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, CALIFORNIA (2003)
Samples from excavation units at the Combar Road sites (CA-SBA-756, -757, and 772) on Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, were floated to recover macrofloral remains. Individual botanic samples from sites CA-SBA-755 and CA-SBA-756 also were submitted for identification. The Combar Road sites are located on a ridgeline within a mile of the coast and are believed to date to the early Holocene. Macrofloral analysis is used to provide information concerning plant resources utilized by the...
POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT SITE CA-SDI-16,047 IN GOAT CANYON, CALIFORNIA (2004)
Pollen and/or macrofloral samples were collected from cultural deposits within five units at site CA-SDI-16,047 in Goat Canyon, California, on the border with Mexico. Goat Canyon opens to the north into the Tijuana River floodplain. Fossil streambeds indicate that this area was also a drainage prehistorically and that the stream meandered from place to place in the canyon over time. The samples represent stained shell lens areas where the soil was cemented together, at depths of around...
POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR SITE 41KR621, TEXAS (2005)
Site 41KR621 is located within the boundaries of a proposed right-of-way extension along Spur 98 in Kerrville, Texas. Situated on the southern approach of Spur 98 to the Guadalupe River, this multi-component, Mid to Late Holocene prehistoric site covers the entire highway right-of-way from the base of an upland toeslope at the southern terminus to the scarp of a terrace above the river. Soil matrix samples from several features at the site were examined for pollen and phytoliths, as were...
POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR SITE 41MV164, SOUTH TEXAS (2005)
Located in south Texas, site 41MV164 is situated near the western edge of Maverick County approximately six miles east of the Rio Grande River, above an unnamed tributary of Elm Creek. The Archaic site consists of a surface scatter of fire-affected rock, chert cores and debitage. Diagnostic tools found on the surface include Ensor-like and Frio dart points, as well as a Seal/om arrow point. Cultural materials were identified in three distinct locations: buried beneath the floodplain...
POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF A HISTORIC GARDEN AT FORT VANCOUVER NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE, VANCOUVER, WASHINGTON (2006)
Pollen and phytolith samples were examined from locations thought to belong to a historic garden area that was part of Fort Vancouver. Samples were examined from seven different excavation units, some of which were associated with features. This analysis focused on identifying any plants that might have been planted in the gardens and describing local vegetation.
POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF SHAKER OCCUPATION AT THE NORTH FAMILY LOT, UNION VILLAGE, OHIO (2005)
Sixteen pollen and phytolith samples were examined from the North Family Lot Site, 33WA407, in Warren County, Ohio. The site, occupying approximately four acres, was part of a Union Village Shaker community from the beginning of the nineteenth century through the early twentieth century. Pollen and phytolith analyses were conducted to document land use within specific locations that will contribute to understanding overall land use patterns at the site.
POLLEN AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS FOR SAMPLES FROM SITE CA-SDI-12,770, CALIFORNIA (2004)
Soil samples from unit fill and a probable hearth at CA-SDI-12,770 for the 4S Ranch Project in southern California were examined for pollen remains. These two samples also served as soil controls for a biface and an Elko projectile point examined for possible protein residues. This site represents a temporary campsite with a surface lithic scatter and a subsurface cultural deposit containing three features and numerous artifacts.
POLLEN, PHYTOLlTH, AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT SITE CA-MNT-307, CALIFORNIA (2005)
Site CA-MNT -307 is located in Monterey County, California. Archaeological investigations at this large site complex included the excavation of Locus 2 and Hole in the Wall Cave. Both of these areas have been associated with several artifacts, including a stemmed biface, lithic flakes, shell beads, and non-human bones at Locus 2, as well as shell, bone, flaked stone, fire-affected rock, charred seeds, and mortars at the cave. The site and its cultural resources are located within the...
PRELIMINARY POLLEN, PHYTOLlTH, AND STARCH ANALYSIS FOR SITES LA138517 AND LA101481 (2004)
Two sites, located within the upper limits of Cedar Lake Draw in the Loco Hills, include a scatter of artifacts, burned caliche, and thermal features. The absence of middens argues for temporary settlements defined by simple fire hearths and a light scatter of artifacts that include flakes, cores, hammerstones, groundstone, and an occasional brownware sherd. Radiocarbon dates indicate occupation falls between approximately 2880 and 6280 BP. Combined pollen, phytolith, and starch analysis...
