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...

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.

Ancient Maya Plant Use In the Mopan River Valley, Belize (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Rebecca Friedel.

The Mopan River valley was home to a number of pre-Hispanic Maya polities, including both political centers and rural communities. The forests and plant products grown in the region played crucial roles in the lifeways of these Maya, providing food, fuel, construction materials, and medicine. This paper presents preliminary results from the analysis of macrobotanical remains recovered through flotation by the Mopan Valley Archaeological Project and Mopan Valley Preclassic Project. These plant...
