Twelve pollen samples were selected for analysis from several areas within 42Ka1969, a two component site located in south central Utah. All of the pollen samples were taken from the later component, which was radiocarbon dated to A.D. 980 and A.D. 1150 (both dates MASCA corrected). Five samples were selected for analysis from the pithouse: two from the floor to the northwest and to the southeast of the hearth (15-7 and 15-9), and three from cists (15-11, 15-12, and 15-14). Outside the pithouse, pollen samples were selected from a

work patio (3-1), a deep small storage cist (5-2), and two contiguous large storage cists (6-3 and 7-4). The third area sampled for pollen was the midden, which yielded two pollen samples: one from a concentration of turkey bones (within the carcass cavity), and the other a general midden sample. In addition to the three archaeological areas sampled for pollen, a composite pollen sample was taken from the modern ground surface in the vicinity of the site.
