ANALYSIS OF TWO POLLEN/PARASITE AND PHYTOLITH SAMPLES FROM BLOCK 37, LOT 1, SKAGWAY, ALASKA
Two samples from Block 37 in the town of Skagway, Alaska, were examined for pollen,
parasite eggs, and phytoliths. These samples represent the fill of Feature 4B, a probable wooden
drainage feature, and Stratum 4 of unknown origin. Evaluation of these samples for pollen and
phytoliths was expected to reveal the presence of discarded food remains and local vegetation.
A search for parasite eggs was undertaken because one of these proveniences was thought to
represent a privy when the samples were selected. In addition, parasite eggs may be recovered
from areas where night soil has been used and from other locations.
