Summary

Fill from four features at four different sites in the Dutch John Privatization Survey was

examined to identify any potential that these features were used to process biscuit root. The

features all represent Archaic occupations in Ashley National Forest near Vernal, Utah.

Combined pollen and starch granule analysis was undertaken to identify use of the features

because processing biscuit root can leave information both in the form of Apiaceae pollen and

recovery of starch granules typical of those produced by members of the Apiaceae family. The

original objective was to search for differences in pollen and starch content in unlined and slablined

features.
