Summary

Samples from pit features at site 42UN2889 in northeast Utah were sampled for pollen and

macrofloral remains. In addition, pollen samples were recovered from the modern ground surface

just off site, from a layer of sand that includes the upper meter of sediments exposed in the pipeline

trench wall, and from a clayey/caliche stratum underneath the sand. The paucity of artifacts found

at the site, combined with the abundance of groundstone and small features, suggests that

42UN2889 is a limited activity site used for plant processing. Radiocarbon dates place occupation

of the site during the early part of the Fremont period, probably between A.D. 250 and 700. Pollen

and macrofloral analyses will be used to determine types of plants processed at this site.
