Summary

Seven samples from the fill of five intact hearths recovered in the access road at site

48FR5666 in central Wyoming were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains. Multiple

samples were recovered from a hearth with stratified fill. All of the hearths exhibited oxidation

rinds varying from 1 cm to 5 cm thick, as well as heavy amounts of charcoal and moderate to

heavy amounts of fire-cracked rock. Conventional radiocarbon ages from these features

ranged from 1770 ± 60 BP to 1140 ± 50 BP, suggesting multiple occupations ranging from the

latter part of the Late Archaic to the early Late Prehistoric. Pollen and macrofloral analyses are

used to provide information concerning plant resources utilized by the various occupants of this

site.
