Summary

Four samples from Skeeter Shelter, site 5EP46, were floated to recover charred

macrofloral remains. This site consists of a small rock shelter and associated rock art located on the Fort Carson Military Reservation south of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Samples were recovered from an area northeast of the rock shelter from a small remnant terrace with an intact prehistoric occupation layer. The main occupation of the site is believed to represent the early Developmental period with radiocarbon dates ranging from 1560 ± 150 to 935 ± 80 YBP. Three macrofloral samples were collected from general excavation fill of this occupation layer. One

additional sample was recovered from Feature 14, a possible hearth found below the main occupation level that yielded a radiocarbon date of 2075 ± 160 YBP. Macrofloral analysis will be used to provide subsistence information concerning plant resources utilized by the various site occupants.
