POLLEN, STARCH, AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS FOR A ROOT CELLAR AT THE EDEN HOUSE SITE (31BR52), NORTH CAROLINA
A single soil sample from the Eden House Site (31BR32) on the North Carolina Coastal
Plain was examined for pollen and phytoliths. Between the 1670s and 1740s this area was a
plantation owned by families of European extraction, probably all English. The soil sample was
collected from a root cellar in what was probably a quarter for enslaved African Americans.
Evidence for cultivated food crops was sought in the pollen and phytolith records.
