Summary

The fill from a single hearth excavated during mitigation at site 48FR5351 in the Wind

River Basin of central Wyoming was examined for pollen and macrofloral remains. This site

consists of the hearth (Feature 2) and a tight concentration of fire-cracked rock (Feature 1).

Charcoal from the hearth yielded a conventional radiocarbon age of 1520 ± 40 BP, placing use

of the hearth at the transition from the Late Archaic (2500-1500 BP) to the Late Prehistoric

(1500-200 BP). Pollen and macrofloral analyses will be used to provide evidence of plant

resources available to and possibly processed in the hearth, as well as wood burned as fuel.
