Summary

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.
