Summary

Two pollen columns and a single feature were examined for pollen from

5GA120B in Middle Park. Macrofloral remains and charcoal were also

identified from the hearth. Pollen analysis was undertaken to provide

paleoenvironmental information specifically for the periods of occupation,

such as Folsom, and generally for the Holocene, as well as identification of

vegetation change at the Pleistocene/Holocene boundary. Pollen and

macrofloral remains were analyzed from Feature 1, a hearth, in an attempt to

identify subsistence activity. In addition, charcoal was also identified to

determine which woody resources were being collected and used as fuel.
