Summary

Three samples were collected and submitted for pollen analysis from sediments from Cueva

Encantada in northeastern Mexico. A travertine layer, as well as sediments above and below the

travertine layer were sampled. These samples were examined in an effort to obtain information

concerning local vegetation and to provide any information concerning drastic differences noted in

preservation above and below the travertine. Fibers were abundant in the cave and restricted to

deposits in 60 cm of dry ashy cave fill. Beneath this level, no fibers were recovered, although stone

tools were present. The travertine layer apparently dates between 4500 and 5500 years ago.
