Summary

Pollen and macrofloral samples were examined from sites 42Cb827 and 42Cb829, Utah,

for the BLM Ninemile - Daddy Canyon testing project. Test pits were excavated at the base of

several Fremont petroglyph panels at both sites. A hearth overlain with a small sandstone slab was

encountered at 42Cb827. The hearth fill was examined for macrofloral remains, while sediment

from the occupation surface adjacent to the hearth was sampled for both pollen and macrofloral

remains. Pollen and macrofloral samples were collected from a cultural horizon containing organic

material and artifacts at 42Sb829. A modern surface sample was collected off-site to serve as a

pollen control. Pollen and macrofloral analyses are used to provide information concerning plant

resources available to and utilized by the occupants of these sites.
