Summary

Two samples from the lower 20 cm of fill from a partly deflated hearth/roasting feature at site 5LA10929 were floated to recover macrofloral remains. This site was exposed in a modern road cut at the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS) in southeast Colorado. It is a multi-component sheltered camp with a sparse lithic scatter, rock art, and thermal features. Charcoal from the feature yielded radiocarbon ages of 1935 ± 120 and 1855 ± 95 BP, reflecting occupation during the Late Archaic/Developmental period. Macrofloral analysis is used to provide information concerning plants that might have been processed in the feature and woods burned as fuel.
