MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT SITE 5PA1764, ELEVEN MILE CANYON RESERVOIR, SOUTH PARK, COLORADO
Author(s): Kathryn Puseman
The fill from a lithic heat treating area, a hearth in the center of a stone circle and an
exterior firepit at site 5PA1764 in central Colorado were examined for macrofloral remains. This
site was examined as part of a proposed land exchange at Eleven Mile Canyon Reservoir in Park
County. The site represents a small, short-term campsite believed to have been used for lithic
reduction and heat treating of lithics. Three ceramic sherds and a conventional radiocarbon age
of 470 ± 40 BP suggest occupation by a Western Dismal River variant of the Plains Apache.
Macrofloral analysis is used to provide information concerning subsistence strategies utilized by
the site occupants.
