Summary

A fiber recovered from a sealed floor context at site 5MN4253A was submitted for

analysis. The pitstructure burned upon abandonment. A maize cob sent for radiocarbon dating

yielded dates ranging from 112 BC to AD 79. Analysis of the fibers embedded in small quantities

of probable floor matrix might assist archaeological interpretations regarding prehistoric use of

textiles and the plants used in the creation of woven fabrics.
