Summary

Pollen and macrofloral remains of three packrat middens, an olla, resin

from an olla lid, and several control samples were analyzed in conjunction

with archaeological mitigation of two sites, AZR:I0:30(ASM) and

AZR:I0:31(ASM), located near Blythe, Arizona. The data were collected for

the purpose of interpreting the paleoenvironment at the time of occupation.

In addition, data were sought to identify the contents of the two ollas from

different sites. Very little is presently known about the paleoenvironment

or subsistence from this area.
