Summary

Sediment samples from three hearths or hearth dump areas at sites 5DA2299 and

5DA2300 were floated to recover macrofloral remains to provide subsistence information

concerning plant resources utilized by the occupants of these sites. In addition, a mano found

in the hearth/hearth dump at 5DA2299 was washed for pollen, starches, and phytoliths in order

to determine plants hat might have been processed using this tool. These sites are located

south of Denver near the town of Parker in central Colorado. The hearths were exposed by

construction scrapers that cut off the top portion of the features. Radiocarbon ages ranging

from 1560 to 2040 BP on charred material from the hearths/hearth dump areas indicate Late

Prehistoric occupation of the area.
