Summary

Samples from site 48NA465 in central Wyoming were submitted for pollen, macrofloral,

charcoal identification, and protein residue analyses. This site appears to contain four separate

cultural components based on absolute radiocarbon dates and diagnostic artifacts and to have

been used for lithic tool manufacturing, hunting bison and smaller animals, and roasting and

cooking activities. Pollen and macrofloral analysis, including charcoal identification, of samples

from feature fill and/or activity areas can provide information concerning plant resources that were

utilized by the various site occupants. Charcoal samples were identified prior to submission for

radiocarbon dating. Six projectile points were analyzed for possible protein residues to determine

types of animals that might have been hunted using these artifacts.
