THE LEWIS AND CLARK TRAIL: EXAMINATION OF PIT FEATURES FROM FORT CLATSOP, OREGON FOR POLLEN, PHYTOLITHS, PARASITES, STARCH GRANULES, AND MACROFLORAL REMAINS; AND POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF SEDIMENT FROM FIRE FEATURES AT LOWER PORTAGE CAMP, MONTANA (1998)
Sediment from a suspected privy pit and a post hole at Fort Clatsop, Oregon, was examined for pollen, starch, parasites, phytoliths, and macrofloral remains to obtain information that might assist in identifying the function of these pits. The presence of parasite eggs and/or recovery of probable food remains are used to determine a privy function. Three fire features and an area of possible cooking pot spill at the Lewis and Clark Lower Portage Camp in Montana also were examined for pollen,...
THE LEWIS AND CLARK TRAIL: EXAMINATION OF PIT FEATURES FROM FORT CLATSOP, OREGON, FOR POLLEN, PHYTOLITHS, PARASITES, STARCH GRANULES, AND MACROFLORAL REMAINS (2002)
Ten samples collected stratigraphically through sediment from a suspected privy pit and a post mold at Fort Clatsop, Oregon, were examined for pollen, starch, parasites, phytoliths, and macrofloral remains to obtain information that might assist in identifying the function of these features.

MACROFLORAL, POLLEN AND PARASITE ANALYSIS, AND WOOD IDENTIFICATION OF PRIVY SAMPLES FROM SITE 13DB899, DUBUQUE COUNTY, IOWA (2016)
Site 13DB889 is situated within a historic, urban neighborhood along Rhomberg and Kniest Streets in the City of Dubuque, Iowa. The nineteenth to twenty-first century homes were occupied predominantly by working-class, German Catholic residents (Leah D. Rogers, personal communication August 10, 2016). Several privies, possibly used into the 1910s, were sampled for pollen, parasite, and macrofloral analyses. Pollen and macrofloral analyses of privy fill provide information concerning foods eaten...

These three privies are associated with a German immigrant community that dated to the latter half of the nineteenth century. Each of the samples was analyzed for macrofloral remains, pollen, starch, and the presence or absence of parasites. One sample from each privy was also examined for phytoliths. The macrofloral,...
Site HjCl-9 (Uivak Point 1) is located in Labrador, Canada. This protohistoric spring/winter/fall settlement camp containing nine houses is thought to have been occupied in the seventeenth and/or eighteenth centuries. Two samples from a possible human coprolite sample, collected as organic fill under a sleeping platform in House 7, were examined for pollen, phytolith, parasites, and starch. These analyses will be used to provide information regarding the subsistence patterns of the early...

Four parasite samples were recovered from sediment contained within brick shaft features at the Philadelphia MDC Site (36PH91) in downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Parasite analysis was undertaken on sediment from levels that either appeared to contain fecal matter or from deposits that should have contained fecal matter if any were present in the feature. The presence of human parasites assists in identifying the function of these features, as well as provides some information concerning...

One sediment sample from the Armoury, an 18th-century forge site located in Williamsburg, Virginia, was submitted to the Fiske Center for Archaeological Research for parasitological examination. The sample analyzed was collected from Feature 10 in order to verify the feature’s function as a privy. Eighteen total eggs from both roundworms (Ascaris sp.) and whipworms (Trichuris sp.) were identified in the fifteen-gram Armoury sample. Although the density of eggs per gram falls below the Jones...
