MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING AT SITES 42WS447, 42WS3056, 42WS3061, 42WS3148, 42WS3149, AND 42WS3150, SOUTHWEST UTAH

Summary

A total of 22 macrofloral samples were examined from sites 42WS447, 42WS3056,

42WS3061, 42WS3148, 42WS3149, and 42WS3150 in Washington County, Utah. Five of

these sites represent shelters with occupations ranging from the Basketmaker II to Paiute.

42WS3056 has been identified as a large artifact scatter, and diagnostic artifacts recovered

from the site have been associated with a mid to late Archaic cultural occupation. Macrofloral

analysis was conducted in order to determine possible plant resources processed by the

various occupants of these sites. Five charcoal samples recovered from the macrofloral

samples were processed for AMS radiocarbon analysis.
