An Analysis of Macrobotanical and Pollen Remains from Several Contexts Associated with the Manchester Boarding House (2006)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Susan Jacobucci.

Six bulk soil samples and one sample suitable for palynological analysis were submitted to the Fiske Center from a turn-of-the-century tenement boarding house yard in Manchester, New Hampshire. The six soil samples were submitted as pairs of samples taken from both 19th and 20th-century strata in order to examine change in landscape use over time. Macrobotanical analysis found high levels of weedy and ruderal plants in 19th-century context, as well as evidence of low-growing wild fruits such as...


An Analysis of Pollen from Eighteen Soil Samples Recovered From the Upper Garden Area (44FX762/43) at George Washington's Mount Vernon, Mount Vernon, Virginia (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Susan Jacobucci.

Eighteen soil samples from Feature 44FX762/43 (the Upper Garden Area) at George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens in Virginia were submitted to the Fiske Center for palynological analysis in order to aid archaeologists in their reconstruction of this historic garden. While some samples were not suitable for environmental reconstruction due to poor preservation, many economic and ornamental taxa were recovered, as well as a full spectrum of ambient pollen rain. The presence of such...


An Analysis of Pollen from Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest: the South Profile of the Gully Located within Site B (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Susan Jacobucci.

Nineteen soil samples from Site B, an early nineteenth-century site located in Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest (Virginia) were submitted to the Fiske Center for palynological analysis. Over 100 distinct taxa were recovered from the eleven samples that were considered to be well preserved enough to allow for a representative reconstruction of past environmental conditions. When viewed collectively, the recovered taxa describe a landscape consisting of both managed ornamental grounds and areas of...


An Analysis of Pollen from Two Archaeological Sites in Windsor, Broome County, New York (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Susan Jacobucci.

Twenty two soil samples from two prehistoric (Middle Archaic to Woodland) Native American sites in Broome County, New York, were submitted to the Fiske Center for palynological analysis. Within these samples, 72 taxa were identified, providing evidence of a changing landscape which was shaped by human land management strategies, including controlled burning and the intentional cultivation of maize (Zea mays) as a food crop.


An Analysis of Pollen Recovered from the Greenhouse at Wye House Plantation, Maryland (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Heather Trigg. Susan Jacobucci.

Nineteen soil samples from a historic greenhouse and slave quarter context located at the Wye House Plantation in Maryland were submitted to the Fiske Center for palynological analysis. Over 120 distinct taxa were identified, including many ornamental taxa such as Hibiscus sp. (Hibiscus) and Citrus sp. (lemons, limes and oranges) as well as a full spectrum of ambient pollen rain. Analysis of samples from the slave quarters suggested the possible utilization and/or consumption of plants such as...

Report on Soil Samples from Saugus Ironworks, Saugus, Massachusetts (2005)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Heather Trigg. Diana Gallagher.

Six flotation samples and one palynological sample from prehistoric contexts at the Saugus Iron Works site in Massachusetts were submitted to the Fiske Center for macrobotanical and palynological assessment and analysis. The palynological sample's low pollen grain density and high proportion of Liguliforae pollen suggested that attempting an accurate vegetation reconstruction at this site through palynological analysis may be impossible due to weathering and preservation concerns. While...
