POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM THE THREE O'CLOCK SHELTER, SITE 5WL1997, NORTHEASTERN COLORADO
The Three O'clock Shelter (5WL1997) is a multi-component rockshelter located in the
West Stoneham Archaeological District of the Pawnee National Grassland in northeastern
Colorado. Six pollenand phytolith samples were collected from several culturally affiliated layers
in and around the rock shelter. The seventh sample previously was examined (Cummings et al.
1995) and was integrated with the present data base. The samples generally represent areas
of low cultural impact or areas peripheral to high culturally impacted locations. Radiocarbon
ages currently associated with the samples range between 1540 + 70 and 920 + BP, and
represent Mid to Late Plains Woodland occupations. Later, Upper Republican and Plains
Apache (Dismal River) occupations also are represented. The pollen and phytolith samples
provide information on cultural activity at the site, as well as on prehistoric vegetation in the area.
