Summary

The Field Brook Project involves archaeological investigations for replacement of the bridge

that carries S 1015 over Field Brook in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. Excavations included

five trenches, three of which were sampled stratigraphically for pollen. Upon examination of the

stratigraphic sequence, two of these profiles were selected for pollen analysis (Columns 1 and 2).

Stratigraphic pollen analysis was designed to provide a record of vegetation for individual levels

within these profiles that would, in turn, be interpreted to reflect paleoenvironmental conditions.

In addition, a single organic mat sample, yielding a radiocarbon age of 14,400 BP, was submitted

for pollen and macrofloral analysis to determine what the mat was made of and to identify plants

in the area when the mat formed.
