Summary

The Buck Draw site (48SW883) is located northeast of Wamsutter, Wyoming on the

eastern flank of the Great Divide Basin. Three components were identified in the field and

radiocarbon dated to 1400 ± 50 and 1820 ± 70 BP for Component I (the upper component),

5970 ± 50 BP for Component II (the middle component), and 5930 ± 40 BP and 5840 ± 40 BP

for Component III (the lower component). Pollen was examined from sampled collected both

inside and outside of features. In addition, FTIR (infra-red) analysis was conducted on all

subsurface samples to identify the presence of fats, lipids, waxes, and carbohydrates that

indicate food processing.
