POLLEN ANALYSIS AT AZ:AA:12:869
Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings
Site AZ AA:12:869(ASM) includes a prehistoric canal. This Colonial Hohokam site yielded
a radiocarbon age of AD 880 to 970 (one-sigma calibration) near the top of the canal and an age
of AD 780 to 900 and AD 790 to 900 (one-sigma calibration) near the bottom of the canal. This
canal came off the Rillto River. Pollen samples were examined from the modern surface in a fallow
cotton field, and from the prehistoric canal beneath a large sherd and under a mano fragment.
Pollen analysis was conducted to examine this canal for possible evidence of agriculture associated
with the Colonial Hohokam occupation.
Three pollen samples collected from a prehistoric canal at AZ AA: 12:869(ASM) were
examined for pollen to identify evidence of agriculture and to describe local vegetation.
