Summary

Samples from two pit features at Site AR-03-08-02-419 (LA 115574) were examined for

pollen and macrofloral remains. In addition, a macrofloral sample was collected from the general

site surface to serve as a control. This site is part of the Sacramento River Road project in

southern New Mexico. The site yielded Iithics dating to the Archaic period, although a single

radiocarbon sample from one of the pit features yielded a conventional radiocarbon age of 200 ±

60 BP (Beta-167292). This area has experienced some historic burns. Pollen and macrofloral

analyses are used to provide information concerning subsistence resources utilized by the site

occupants.
