Summary

Bulk soil samples were sent from 14MT138 for pollen and macrofloral analysis. The

samples were recovered during a site reconnaissance along the North Fork of the Cimarron

River on the Cimarron National Grassland in Morton County, Kansas. The samples were

excavated from an amorphous organic stain, identified as Feature 1. The feature contained a

variety of cultural materials including flecks of charcoal, bone fragments, and chipped stone

artifacts. One burial, containing fragmentary human remains of an infant, also was identified.

The goals of the analyses were two-fold. First, determine whether the human remains were

interred with floral accompaniments. Second, identify the organic materials recovered from the

feature.
