Summary

Additional samples were submitted for pollen and phytolith analysis from various sites

(34BV166, 34BV181, 34BV182, an 34WO69) near Bull Creek, Oklahoma. Data from these

samples was merged with data obtained from previous analyses to provide a more complete

interpretation of the paleoenvironmental record. Most of these samples represent sediments

estimated to represent either Late Pleistocene or Early Holocene deposits. A radiocarbon age

of 12,300 ± 80 BP anchors the middle of the record from 34BV181. A radiocarbon age of

15,720 ± 80 BP represents the lower level examined from 34WO69, while the upper sample is

associated with an age of 5450 ± 40 BP. The lower portion of 34BV182 yielded a radiocarbon

age of 2540 ± 40 BP, while the hearth fill from 34BV166 yielded a very recent age of 130 BP.
