Sediment Samples (Other Keyword)
1-17 (17 Records)
Archaeobotanic analyses were conducted on samples from deposits at the Eagle Point Site (5RB4662), a rockshelter/overhang located along Piceance Creek in northwest Colorado. This shelter experienced multiple occupations, with radiocarbon ages ranging from 2510 to 1010 BP. The roof/overhang has collapsed; therefore, cultural deposits are exposed and eroding away. Two stratigraphic columns were sampled at close intervals during both the 2004 and 2005 excavations for the purpose of building a...
EXAMINATION OF DETRITAL CHARCOAL AND AMS RADIOCARBON ANALYSIS OF MATERIAL FROM ALONG EAST CLEAR CREEK, ARIZONA (2006)
A total of four samples from along East Clear Creek in east-central Arizona were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon analysis. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. Charcoal from one of the samples was processed for AMS radiocarbon analysis.
EXPLORATORY POLLEN ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SAN PEDRO SIRIS, BELIZE (2004)
Ten pollen samples collected from sediments in the East Field system at San Pedro Siris, situated in the Yalbac area of the Cayo District of central Belize, were examined for pollen evidence of crops.
EXPLORATORY POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR THE BAKSIHI SITE, CEBU, PHILIPPINES (2004)
PolIen, starch, and phytolith analysis were conducted on sediment samples from the Baksihi Site in Cebu, Philippines to assess future possibilities for analysis and interpretation of the archaeobotanic and/or paleoenvironmental record. These samples represent exposures 250 and 300 m inland from the contemporary mean tidal zone.
MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF TWENTY-SEVEN SAMPLES FROM THE CANOE RAMP LOOP ROAD AREA OF THE PARDEE SITE, 36-MR-5, PENNSYLVANIA (1991)
Twenty-seven samples from Phase III Excavations in the Canoe Ramp Loop Road area of the Pardee Site (36-MR-5) in Pennsylvania, were examined for macrofloral remains. Corrected radiocarbon dates and artifact types recovered suggest that this is a multicomponent site, and place use of the features at different times during the Late Archaic to the Colonial periods, approximately 3770 to 350 BP. Macrofloral analysis is used to address subsistence at this site.
PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS AT ASAN, GUAM (1997)
Sixteen phytolith samples were selected for analysis from the Asan Residential Phase and Asan Commercial Phase excavations. Sediments from layers were examined from both areas and features were examined from the Asan Commercial Phase excavations. These coastal areas are located at the edge of Asan. Phytolith analysis was undertaken to provide information concerning past vegetation, land use, and use of features.
PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR SITE 3SC1777, SCOTT COUNTY, ARKANSAS (2004)
Six phytolith samples were submitted from stratigraphic deposits at 3SC1777, a site located on a rocky upland slope overlooking the Fourche La Fave River floodplain. This Middle and Late Archaic site yielded projectile points providing date ranges from approximately 6,000- 4,000 years ago. Oxidizable carbon ratio (OCR) dates indicate occupation between 6,050 BP and 3,100 BP.
POLLEN ANALYSIS OF POSSIBLE AGRICULTURAL OR HORTICULTURAL TERRACES FOR THE CAVE CREEK RECREATION AREA ARCHEOLOGICAL MITIGATION PROJECT OF NORTHERN MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA (1991)
Seven pollen samples were examined from two sites in the Cave Creek Recreation Area of northern Maricopa County, Arizona. Rock alignments noted at AZ U:1:98 (ASM) and AZ U:1:100 (ASM) may have functioned as check dams, contour terraces or linear borders, retaining walls, diversions walls, rock piles, and/or rock-weighted brush berms. These areas exhibit no evidence of prehistoric canals, and are assumed to have been watered exclusively by hillslope runoff. Examination of pollen samples from...
POLLEN ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM A BIGHORN SHEEP SKULL AND TWO SOIL SAMPLES FROM THE WEST BANK OF THE COLUMBIA RIVER, WASHINGTON (2005)
Three soil samples from the Yakima Training Center in Washington were submitted to Paleo Research Institute for pollen analysis. Two of the samples were collected from 45KT44, and the bighorn sheep skull was noted in the vicinity, but not associated with any archaeological site in the area. Site 45KT44 is a large village site occupied for much of the past 8,000 years. Two samples were collected from trenches "to investigate the geomorphology of the site" (Kimberly Dawson, personal...
POLLEN ANALYSIS OF SEDIMENTS FROM KOWILI FISHPOND, SIHP# 50-80-14-5368, NEAR THE HONOLULU HARBOR, HAWAII (2006)
Kuwili Fishpond (50-80-14-5368) is located under a large empty lot near the present day Honolulu Harbor. This fishpond, which might have been constructed as early as AD 1100, was used until at least the late 19th century. Radiocarbon ages concerning construction dates are problematic, so the archaeological project that produced the samples examined for pollen and microscopic charcoal will focus on obtaining new dates to document the date of original construction. Pollen and microscopic...
POLLEN ANALYSIS, PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS, AND RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARCOAL FROM TUMULUS SEDIMENTS, LA REVIVE, FRANCE (2005)
Pollen and phytolith analysis of two samples from a tumulus at La Revive, France, raised questions concerning the interpretation of the sediments and reproducibility of results. In an attempt to answer specific questions, three additional samples were submitted for pollen and phytolith analysis during 2005. These three samples also were floated to recover charcoal fragments that were AMS radiocarbon dated. Specific questions included dating Strata 4, 8, and 9. Stratum 4 might have been a...
POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS FOR SIX SITES IN THE SEEDSKADEE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE PROJECT, GREEN RIVER BASIN, WYOMING (1996)
Samples from Sites 48SW10888, 48SW10893, 48SW9251, 48SW10233, 48SW10248, and 48SW6454 were analyzed for pollen and macrofloral remains. These sites are part of the Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge project along the Green River in the Green River Basin of southwest Wyoming. Pollen samples were examined from stratigraphic columns and features at these sites. Vegetation and paleoenvironmental reconstructions were made from stratigraphic pollen records. he stratigraphic pollen records act as...
POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR CHARLES TOWNE LANDING, SOUTH CAROLINA (2005)
Samples were examined from Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, the first permanent English settlement of the Colony Carolina. It was occupied between 1670 and 1680. Soil recovered from a trench feature in a possible small, seventeenth century vineyard was submitted for analysis. Documents indicate small grape arbors adjacent to houses in the area. Occupants grew experimental crops to determine what, if anything, would grow well in Carolina. Crops attempted include indigo, tobacco,...
POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR SITE 38DR141, SOUTH CAROLINA (2004)
Nine combination pollen and phytolith samples were examined from a variety of contexts from a late 18th and early 19th century plantation in Charleston County, South Carolina. Suspected garden plantings, garden parterres, an interior brick wall, thought to represent a walled garden or a retainer for compost, as well as a wall trench from an African American slave house were examined.
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, STARCH, AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM THE CEDAR BREAKS PROJECT, NEW MEXICO (2004)
Fifty combination pollen, starch, and phytolith samples were examined from seven archaeological sites on the Cedar Breaks Project, New Mexico. This project is located in the Mescalero Sands environmental area of southeastern New Mexico.
