Summary

A total of 24 lithic artifacts and 3 pieces of groundstone were submitted from the West

Blennerhassett site (46WD83-A) on the West Blennerhassett Island in the Ohio River, northwest

West Virginia. Samples were recovered from horizons associated with occupations from the

Late Early Archaic (c. 6470-6300 B.C.) through the Terminal Early Archaic-Early Middle Archaic

(c. 6210-5430 B.C.). The groundstone were washed to recover pollen, phytoliths, and starches

to provide evidence for processing of plant resources with these tools. Lithic artifacts were

examined for the presence of possible protein residues resulting from use to hunt/process

animal resources.
