Summary

Stratigraphic pollen and phytolith samples were collected at wide

intervals from a stratigraphic profile at 5BL2431 to assess major trends in

the paleoenvironment, as well as to provide stratigraphic controls for the

interpretation of pollen recovered from groundstone washes. Seven pieces of

groundstone were washed for their pollen to provide information concerning

exploitation of plants as food by the occupants of this site. Two cultural

levels, representing the Early Ceramic Period (approximately 2000-1000 BP)

and an earlier occupation (2610 BP) are represented along with culturally

sterile levels. A single sample represents the present ground surface.
