Summary

Four soil samples from a continuous soil column and a paleosol remnant at the Jake

Bluff site (34HP60) in northwest Oklahoma were examined for pollen and phytoliths as a

preliminary to examine the condition of the pollen and phytoliths and make recommendations

for future analysis. Two Clovis artifacts, one Folsom point, and two soil controls from the site

also were analyzed for protein residues to identify animals that might have been

hunted/processed with these artifacts. The remains of 15 Bison antiquus were found in the

bottom of a short arroyo associated with two Clovis projectile points previously analyzed for

protein residues. A radiocarbon date of 10,750 BP suggests that this site post-dates mammoth

extinction in the area and might represent a late-Clovis adaptation to bison hunting. The site

also contains a Folsom level with bison bone.
