PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF A FLUTED POINT FROM THE BOG SITE, CA-SDI-2506, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
A single obsidian fluted point and an associated soil control from the Bog Site, CA-SDI-2506, in the Lost Valley area in northeastern San Diego County, California, were tested for
possible protein residues. Although the site has been culturally affiliated with a seasonal camp
of the late prehistoric and protohistoric Cupeno People and possibly the Mountain Cahuilla, the
fluted point is believed to represent the early Holocene Clovis Culture approximately 10,000 to
12,000 years ago. Obsidian sourcing analysis indicates that the source of the lithic material
was Lookout Mountain in the Casa Diablo Complex, about 540 kilometers north of the site.
Protein residue analysis was undertaken to determine if proteins were present on the artifact
surface that would provide information concerning animals that were hunted with this tool.
