Summary

Pollen and macrofloral samples were examined from the fill of a discrete ash lense in

the side-wall of an incised wash at the Catacombs Curve site (26Ck4943) in southwest Nevada

to determine if the feature is natural or cultural in origin. A control sample from unit fill also was

examined. The Catacombs Curve site is an open, ceramic period artifact scatter located in the

Newberry Mountains near the eroded granitic rock formation known as the “Catacombs”. The

site is identified as ancestral Yuman (lowland Patayan), based on location near the lower

Colorado River and the presence of Lower Colorado type ceramics. Occupation is estimated to

have occurred between AD 500 and 1900.
