Summary

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.
