Summary

Samples from pit structures, pits, and a trash deposit at Area 15 of Pueblo

Salado were examined for pollen, phytoliths, and macrofloral remains. Area 15

represents the easternmost component of Pueblo Salado and appears to be

associated with an early Classic or even a late Sedentary occupation. Previous

pollen studies at Area 8/9 and 14 of Pueblo Salado showed a strong association

with riverine resources, and every macrobotanical sample contained maize remains. Pollen, phytolith , and macrofloral analyses of Area 15 samples will provide additional information concerning subsistence strategies at Pueblo Salado. Because Area 15 is believed to represent one of the earliest components at Pueblo Salado, pollen, phytolith, and macrofloral analyses will aid in determining what subsistence strategies were employed during initial settlement of the site.
