Summary

Site 48UT375 exhibits evidence of four human occupations, three of which range in age

from Paleoindian to Middle Archaic, while the fourth remains undated. Stratigraphic analysis of

twelve samples from site 48UT375, which yielded radiocarbon ages ranging from 4030 to 4220 BP

for the upper component and 8300 to 8600 BP for the lower component, yielded a pollen record

reflecting changes in local vegetation. In addition, examination of features representing the upper

occupation provided a pollen record to compare with the stratigraphic record in an effort to identify

plants that might have been processed. While examining these samples for pollen, starches were

recorded to further boost the record of economic activity.
