Summary

Pollen and macrofloral analyses were undertaken at site 41BS706-B in

Big Bend National Park, Texas to evaluate the prehistoric environment and

gather data concerning the prehistoric economy, the cultural context of

various features, and seasonality of occupation. The pollen samples were

taken from a stratigraphic pollen column, as well as a feature and the soil

beneath a possible metate recovered within a feature. The macrofloral

samples concentrated on sampling the features and areas which were

considered in the field most likely to yield macrofloral remains. A total

of 11 pollen and four macrofloral samples were analyzed in this study.
