POLLEN ANALYSIS AT EAST RUIN, AZTEC RUINS NATIONAL MONUMENT, NEW MEXICO
Six pollen samples were analyzed from three mounds from the East Ruin
at Aztec Ruins National Monument in New Mexico. This analysis was performed
in association with excavations to determine the nature of various mounds.
Excavations confirmed Mound E as a trash mound from the Mesa Verde period
(1200s), Mound D as a roomblock extension of Mound C, and the unnumbered
mound as an historic earthwork possibly associated with a barn. The
emphasis of the pollen study was on establishing a spectrum of pollen to aid
in interpretation of target deposits.
