Summary

Site 48SW1090 (Raptor Site) represents a Late Prehistoric, Uinta camp located on the

eastern margin of the Leucite Hills. Pollen and macrofloral analyses concentrated on

examination of feature fill from a deflated house structure and several hearths. The probable

house structure exhibited two distinct occupational surfaces and three interior features

associated with the lower occupation. In addition, three isolated features were noted to the

northwest of the possible housepit that appear not to be related to occupation of the possible

deflated structure. Pollen and macrofloral analyses focuses on identifying probable plant

processing activities at this site. No stratigraphic pollen column was collected.
