Summary

The Point Pleasant Pennsylvania site (36BU23) is located on the west

bonk of the Delaware River in Bucks County. Situated on the floodplain

between the river and the Delaware Pennsylvania conal, which was completed

in 1832, this site includes stacked floodplain deposits that are subject to

periodic flooding. Stratigraphic pollen samples were collected in three

areas to assess paleoenvironmental conditions at this site. Flotation

samples were collected from various features and zones throughout the site

for the purpose of recovering charred macrofloral remains. These

macrofloral remains may be indicators of subsistence activities at the site.
