Summary

Excavation of a series of overhangs in Emery County, Utah, known as the

Cedar Siding Shelter (42EM1533) included pollen sampling. Cedar Siding

Shelter is a series of overhangs located around a single, large boulder.

The site ranges in age from Middle Archaic to Fremont. Water is currently

available from nearby Grassy Trail Creek and an unnamed intermittent

drainage. Price River flows approximately 2 1/2 miles to the south of the

site. Eleven pollen samples were selected for analysis, and included both a

stratigraphic column and feature samples (Table 1). The stratigraphic

column was analyzed to assess the paleoenvironment, while the feature

samples were analyzed in an effort to define subsistence patterns at the

site.
