Summary

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.
