MACROFLORAL, POLLEN, STARCH, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM THE MALIN CREEK FISHING HOLE SITE, 24YE353, YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, WYOMING
Six soil samples from four fire-cracked rock features at the Malin Creek Fishing Hole
Site, 24YE353, in Yellowstone National Park, Montana, were floated to recover macrofloral
remains. One metate was washed to recover pollen, starches, and possible protein residues
that would aid in identifying plants processed using the metate. Lithic artifacts and radiocarbon
dates reflect Late Paleoindian, McKean (3500-1000 B.C.), Pelican Lake (1000 B.C. to A.D.
400), and Avonlea (A.D. 250-1000) occupations. Macrofloral analysis of the feature fill will be
used to provide information concerning plant resources processed at the site, as well as types
of wood burned as fuel.
