EXPLORATORY POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS AT 41RG13, BIG LAKE PLAYA, WEST TEXAS
Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings
EXPLORATORY POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS AT 41RG13, BIG LAKE PLAYA, WEST TEXAS:
A bison site (41RG13) buried in the lake bed of an intermittent playa (Big Lake) in Regan County, West Texas, contained bison tone, flakes, tools, and a dart point. A radiocarbon age of 7530 + 150 BP was obtained from a bison bone sample. Pollen and phytoliths were analyzed from this site to assess the utility of further analysis of pollen and/or phytoliths to reconstruct paleoenvironmental conditions in the vicinity of Big Lake Playa.
EXPLORATORY POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS AT 41CV312, TEXAS:
Two pollen samples were selected for analysis from 41CV312, a site located adjacent to a small intermittent tributary to Cowhouse Creek. A radiocarbon age of 3610 + 120 BP was obtained from a buried hearth. The purpose of pollen and phytolith analyses was to identify the potential for paleoenvironmental interpretations and further pollen and phytolith analyses in conjunction with archaeological mitigation.
