Summary

Samples from Site 48CA450 in northeast Wyoming were submitted for pollen,

macrofloral, and protein residue analysis. This site may be a multicomponent

site with surface and subsurface components. The deeper buried horizon yielded

Pelican Lake style projectile points. Other Pelican Lake sites in the area have

yielded radiocarbon dates of 3,000 - 3,800 B.P. The surface features are

believed to be younger, and may yield radiocarbon dates around 1100 + B.P. One

surface sample and fifteen pollen column soil samples were analyzed for pollen

content, resulting in a terrace stability record and tentative environmental

information. Macrofloral analysis of hearth fill samples is used to provide

information concerning plant resources that may have been utilized by the various

occupants of the site. One of the Pelican Lake-style projectile points from the

deeper buried horizon was analyzed for possible protein residues in order to

obtain information concerning prehistoric faunal resources.
