Summary

A Native American housepit (Feature 57) associated with Mission Santa Clara was

discovered during excavations at the Leavy School of Business on the Santa Clara University in

southern California. Feature 57 is the first Native American house to be identified

archaeologically at Mission Santa Clara. Pollen, phytolith, and macrofloral analyses were

conducted on a single soil sample collected from the housepit floor (Context 168). A floated

light fraction sample also from Context 168 was examined for macrofloral remains. Two

charcoal samples from post-abandonment fill (Context 133) were identified. Botanic analyses

were undertaken to identify plants that were used, stored, and/or processed by the housepit

occupants.
