ANALYSIS OF MACROFLORAL SAMPLES FROM CA-SHA-47, SACRAMENTO VALLEY, NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
Author(s): Curtis Nepstad-Thornberry
Two pre-floated soil samples from CA-SHA-47 were sent for macrobotanic identification.
The samples were recovered from a subsurface cobble layer identified as Feature 1. This
feature was unique at the site and contained a variety of artifacts including ground stones,
chipped stone, and fire-broken rocks and cobbles. The prehistoric activities associated with the
site are unknown; although use as an aboriginal salmon drying area has been postulated (Lisa
Shapiro, personal communication, 2000). Analysis of macrobotanic remains was undertaken to
indicate types of vegetative resources used by prehistoric groups at the site.
