Summary

This Paleoindian and Early Archaic site, occupied during the Late Pleistocene and Early

Holocene, contained a medicine wheel. Control pollen samples were collected and examined

from four areas supporting different vegetation to establish pollen signatures for these areas that

would assist in interpreting the prehistoric record. Four samples were collected beneath rocks

of the medicine wheel in an effort to find pollen associated with the Paleoindian occupation and

characterize the local vegetation and possibly identify activities associated with the medicine

wheel.
