PHYTOLITH AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF FORTY TABULAR STONE KNIVES FROM THE LOWER VERDE PROJECT IN CENTRAL ARIZONA (1994)
Forty tabular stone knives from Sites AZ U:2:73, AZ U:2:80, and AZ U:2:93 in the Lower Verde project area in central Arizona were washed for phytoliths and possible plant proteins. These knives were recovered from floors or roofs in processing areas at village sites and are believed to have been used to process agave. The phytolith washes were examined for the presence of agave raphids, and the protein residue washes were tested against agave antisera to detect prehistoric agave proteins.
