Summary

Samples from two hearth features at site CA-SDI-9595 were examined for pollen phytolith and/or macrofloral remains. The fill of single hearth features at sites CA-SDI-14451 and CA-SDI-14452 also was floated to recover charred macrofloral remains. These sites are located in the Extension Area of the Torrey Pines State Reserve in Del Mar, California. Radiocarbon dates suggest occupation of CA-SDI-9595 around A.D. 1000-1200 and occupation of CA-SDI-14451 around A.D. 1200-1300. A calibrated radiocarbon date of 6220 to 5370 B.C. was returned for

charcoal from CA-SDI-14452. Pollen, phytolith, and macrofloral analyses are used to provide information concerning plant resources available to and utilized by the occupants of these sites.
