Summary

A stratigraphic pollen column was examined from the sediments at 5EP935,

associated with Crow's Roost, a prominent sandstone cliff. An intermittent

creek, Black Squirrel Creek, flows west of the cliff to eventually drain into the

Arkansas River. A series of sites are noted along the base of the cliff, ranging

in age from Archaic through Early Ceramic, with possible Middle and Late Ceramic

components (McDonald et al., n.d.). Site 5EP935 is located near the extreme

southern end of the cliff outcrop. Stratigraphic pollen analysis was undertaken

to define vegetation and paleoenvironmental conditions along Crow' s Roost prior

to and during the Late Archaic. Macrofloral samples were examined from two

features to identify plant processing activities.
