Summary

Twenty-two pollen and twenty macrofloral samples were collected from fill of structures

and pits in the Carson City Freeway Phase 2 project. Fifty features were identified during

Phase II testing. Analysis of pollen and macrofloral samples was prioritized to examine

primarily structures. Eight radiocarbon dates have been received that indicate occupation

between approximately 380 and 1760 BP. This phase of the analysis is considered to be an

examination of the pollen and macrofloral records for preservation and recovery of data that

can provide information on the past environment during this approximately 1400 years of

occupation in the area, as well as provide evidence of some of the plants that people selected

to exploit.
