Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site (Site Name Keyword)
1-4 (4 Records)
Two samples from the lower 20 cm of fill from a partly deflated hearth/roasting feature at site 5LA10929 were floated to recover macrofloral remains. This site was exposed in a modern road cut at the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS) in southeast Colorado. It is a multi-component sheltered camp with a sparse lithic scatter, rock art, and thermal features. Charcoal from the feature yielded radiocarbon ages of 1935 ± 120 and 1855 ± 95 BP, reflecting occupation during the Late Archaic/Developmental...
MACROFLORAL AND ANTHRACOLOGICAL (CHARCOAL) ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM SITES 5LA03269, 5LA03300, AND 5LA05699, LAS ANIMAS COUNTY, COLORADO (2017)
Sites 5LA03269, 5LA03300, and 5LA05699 are situated in the Big Arroyo Hills within the Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS), Las Animas County, Colorado (Wayne Thomas, personal communication October 6, 2017). Four features encountered at these sites were sampled for macrofloral and anthracological (charcoal) analysis to recover and identify charred floral remains and charcoal suitable for AMS radiocarbon age determination. Four radiocarbon dates were requested to ascertain period of use.
Sites 5EP46 and 5LA10370 on the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site were sampled for pollen to identify evidence of food or plant processing.
POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM THREE SITES FOR THE 2004-PINON CANYON MANEUVER SITE MITIGATION PROJECT, SOUTHEAST COLORADO (2004)
Pollen and macrofloral samples were examined from three sites in the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site of southeast Colorado. These sites represent a series of Late Prehistoric rockshelters with multicomponent occupations, including the Developmental period (AD 100- 1050), Diversification period (AD 1050-1450), Protohistoric period (AD 1450-1725), and historic period. Pollen and macrofloral analyses will be used to provide information concerning subsistence strategies utilized by the various...
