AN INTERPRETATION OF THE STRATIGRAPHIC POLLEN RECORD AT THE MILL IRON SITE, SOUTHEASTERN MONTANA (1988)

Previous pollen analysis at the Mill Iron site has yielded evidence of local vegetation at the time of the Goshen occupation, as well as throughout portions of the stratigraphic record between that time and the present (Scott 1985; Cummings 1987). The first study (Scott 1985) examined sediments that yielded radiocarbon ages between 1270 and 4570 BP and indicated that pollen preservation was sufficient to undertake a more thorough stratigraphic study of the pollen record.

POLLEN ANALYSIS OF STRATIGRAPHIC DEPOSITS AT THE MILL IRON SITE, SOUTHEASTERN MONTANA (1985)

DOCUMENT [ID: 376691] Linda J. Scott. PaleoResearch Institute.

The Mill Iron Site (24CT30) is a Paleo Indian site located in southeastern Montana to the northwest of the Little Missouri River. Projectile points, other chipped stone artifacts, and animal bone were exposed along the slopes of the small ridge or cuesta upon which this site is located. This site lies on a south and west sloping cuesta between a higher mesa on the north and Humbolt Creek on the south. The cuesta appears to have been connected to the mesa as a ridge spur at one time, but...
