Summary

Pollen and macrofloral samples were recovered from the Sleeping Rainbow Ranch, site

42WN1885, in Capitol Reef National Park, Utah. This site contains both prehistoric and historic

components. Pollen samples were collected from a historic stone masonry structure, possibly a

fruit cellar, and from an unknown prehistoric trench-like feature. In addition, a control sample

was collected from the modern ground surface. Macrofloral samples were taken from the

prehistoric trench-like feature and from an isolated firepit. Charcoal from the firepit was

submitted for AMS radiocarbon analysis. Pollen and macrofloral samples were examined in

order to identify plant resources available to both the prehistoric and historic occupants of the

site.
