Summary

Samples from columns at several sites within Phillips Laboratory on Edwards

Air Force Base, California, were examined for pollen remains. These sites have

the potential for being affected by activities associated with hazardous waste

investigations and remediation activities. Pollen analysis on these column

samples is used to provide information on the paleoenvironment and assess the

potential for future studies. Two flotation samples were also examined from a

possible deflated hearth to provide information concerning possible foods

processed in this feature. In addition, several artifacts from these sites were

analyzed for possible protein residues. Immunological studies have shown that

blood residues from a tool's surface can be identified using modified forensic

procedures involving the antigen-antibody reaction. Analysis of protein residues

is used to provide prehistoric subsistence information and possible artifact

specificity.
