Summary

Soil samples from features at Sites 42SV2304 and 42SV2229 from the Fish Lake area

in central Utah were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains. Site 42SV2304 is a Fremont

site with a rock-ringed structure. Site 42SV2229 is a multicomponent site with occupations

ranging from the Late Archaic through the historic period. Pollen and macrofloral analyses were

used to determine if root crops, such as Claytonia (spring beauty) or Lomatium (biscuit root),

may have been harvested and processed at these sites, as well as to provide information about

other plant resources that may have been utilized.
