Summary

Four metates were collected from SLR144, a deeply stratified site on

the bank of Kinney Springs Arroyo. Occupied during the early ceramic or

late archaic period (AD 900-1000), this site yielded evidence of a square to

rectangular house. These metates were selected for analysis to provide

evidence of subsistence activity at the site. Evidence of the growth and

use of cultigens (specifically corn) was sought on the metates. In

addition, the pollen record addresses evidence of the possible utilization

of native plants.
