Summary

Samples from a hearth (Feature 2) at LA 79612 were sampled for pollen and

macrofloral remains. Ceramic types recovered suggest that the site is a Navajo

temporary encampment, and charcoal from the hearth yielded a radiocarbon age of

550 + 60 BP. In addition, one pollen and one flotation sample were examined from

the modern surface in order to provide controls for samples collected from the

hearth. Pollen and macrofloral analyses are used to recover subsistence

information from this hearth.
