Summary

Samples from Site AZ:U:10:139 (ASM) for the Tierra Mesa Development Project in

Maricopa County, Arizona, were analyzed for pollen and macrofloral remains. This site

represents a small Hohokam hamlet with houses-in-pits and associated features. Ceramic

artifacts suggest occupation of this site from AD 800-900. Pollen and macrofloral analyses are

used to provide information concerning prehistoric diet, paleoenvironmental conditions, and land-use

practices at this site to aid in understanding the function of these structures in Hohokam

society. Pollen and macrofloral samples also were examined to identify the presence or absence

of an agricultural function, since archaeological investigations yielded no evidence of agriculture.
