Summary

Site HjCl-9 (Uivak Point 1) is located in Labrador, Canada. This protohistoric spring/winter/fall settlement camp containing nine houses is thought to have been occupied in the seventeenth and/or eighteenth centuries. Two samples from a possible human coprolite sample, collected as organic fill under a sleeping platform in House 7, were examined for pollen, phytolith, parasites, and starch. These analyses will be used to provide information regarding the subsistence patterns of the early occupants of this site, if they do, indeed, represent human fecal remains. In addition, a sample of modern possible bear feces was submitted for analysis.
