POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS FOR THREE SITES (AZ V:13:182, 185, AND 186 (ASM)) FOR THE ASARCO ASLD DATA RECOVERY PROJECT, NEAR KEARNY, ARIZONA

Summary

Sites AZ V: 13:182, 185, and 186 (ASM) are located directly east of the ASARCO-Ray

Mine Complex, in the Dripping Springs Mountains in southcentral Arizona. These multicomponent

sites all exhibit evidence of prehistoric and historic activities. Prehistoric components

at AZ V: 13:182 and 186 (ASM) are Hohokam. The historic components at these sites represent

early mining activities in the region as well as possible Apachean use of the area. Pollen and

macrofloral samples were collected from a rock alignment, roasting pits, midden area and a

possible Apache wickiup to better understand subsistence activities at these sites.
