Summary

Pollen and phytolith analysis was conducted on three stratigraphic core samples from

the Cayo Del Oso site (41NU2). The site is located along the northwestern shore of Oso Bay,

Corpus Christi, Texas. Previous excavations have indicated that the site was a prehistoric

campsite and cemetery. Radiocarbon dates from the test units and the burial ranged from 4400

BP to 1300 BP. Core samples submitted for analysis were derived from pond sediments (core

2) and dune deposits (cores 4 and 6). Pollen and phytolith analysis of these samples was

undertaken to provide paleoenvironmental reconstruction data for the Oso Bay Site and coastal

South Texas.
