Summary

Samples from an Anasazi pit structure at site 26CK2605 in southern Nevada were

submitted for pollen, macrofloral, phytolith, and/or protein residue analyses. Fill from a Late

Archaic hearth also was examined for macrofloral remains. This site is very large and contains

numerous loci and features. The pit structure and thermal pit were located in Midden 1 at Locus

1 in the vicinity of a spring channel. Analyzes were conducted to address questions of subsistence.

Pollen, phytolith, and macrofloral analyses yield information concerning plant resources that were

utilized, while protein analysis of a hammerstone will be used to determine if identifiable plant or

animal protein residues are present on the artifact.
