Summary

Six soil samples from four sites were examined for their pollen

content. Various loose rock structures that might have been associated with

dry land agriculture in prehistoric times were sampled. Agricultural

function at these sites is suggested through the lack of household goods,

fishing implements, or other artifacts. Pollen analysis, then, was

undertaken to identify any indication of specific crops that would support

this theory. In addition, pollen analysis addressed evidence for vegetation

prior to the introduction of historic exotics such as kiawe and haole koa,

which are prominent in the area now.
