Summary

Three hand millingstones from CA-Pla-163 in the Squaw Valley, California, were submitted

for pollen, phytolith, protein residue, and x-ray mineral defraction analysis. All three pieces

exhibited red staining. One of the millingstones was associated with a subsurface rock hearth or

oven feature. Radiocarbon ages of 430 ± 40 BP (calibrated to AD 1420 to 1510 or AD 1600 to

1620) and 840 ± 40 BP (calibrated to AD 1040 to 1260) were returned for charcoal in close

proximity to this millingstone. Pollen, phytolith, and protein residue analysis is used to provide

information concerning plant or animal resources processed with these groundstone, while x-ray

mineral defraction analysis was undertaken to identify the red staining, if it was mineral.
