Summary

Site 48CR4ll4 is a shallow multi-component site located to the west of

Baggs, Wyoming. The flora in this area is xerophytic and dominated by

sagebrush. Two occupational components were identified at the site, based

on radiocarbon dates, stratigraphy, and tool types. A radiocarbon age of

4010 ± 160 BP (Beta 11039) was returned for the first component, while ages

of 1440 ± 90 BP (Beta 11038) and 1190 ± 60 (Beta 11040) were returned for

the second component. Stratigraphic pollen samples were taken at this site

in an effort to define the paleoenvironment. Several samples were also

taken in association with features, and a metate was washed to gather data

concerning subsistence at the site.
