Summary

Sediment samples associated with a late 19th century/early 20th century L-shaped

house containing a brick-lined cellar in downtown Denver, Colorado, were examined for pollen

and macrofloral remains. African American families occupied the house from 1893 to

approximately 1910. Pollen and macrofloral samples were recovered from three levels of fill in

the brick-lined cellar, from a unit outside the house that contained 19th century artifacts, and

from an area inside the house believed to be a possible fire hearth or burned area. Pollen and

macrofloral analyses will be used to help provide information concerning working-class/working-poor

lifeways and the everyday life of African Americans in Denver around the turn of the

century.
