Summary

Pollen and macrofloral analyses were conducted in conjunction with

archaeological mitigation at site 5JF339. This site is located along the

hogback of the front range near Massey Draw. The pollen analysis focused on

the recovery of paleoenvironmental data from two pollen columns; one

collected near the creek bank and bone bed, and the other farther up the

hill in the area of the archaeologically defined camp. In addition, several

pollen samples were collected within features or represent washes of

groundstone. These samples were analyzed in an effort to obtain subsistence

data. In addition, six flotation samples were recovered from features at

the site, also in an effort to gather subsistence data.
