Summary

Pollen samples were collected from five locations in site 3324, a buried

pondfield system at West Loch. Backhoe Trench 4-41, as well as Cores 1 and 2

were collected from Area 4, which included buried fishponds. Backhoe Trench 4-41

was opened immediately outside Buried Fishpond 3322. Cores 1 and 2 were

collected inside the Buried Fishpond 3322 location. Local tradition has it that

the area of Fishpond 3322 functioned as a taro field, then rice field in historic

tines. Cores 3 and 4 were collected in Area 2, which included upland sediments.

Core 3 was retrieved from an area referred to as the lower Field System, while Core

4 was collected from the Upper Field System. Pollen analysis was undertaken to

provide a record of past vegetation in these locations, and in an effort to

identify any agricultural activities.
