Summary

An unwashed ceramic bowl and grinding stone were submitted for starch grain and

phytolith analysis from the Hovey Lake Site (12PO10), Posey County, in southwestern Indiana.

These items were recovered from the floor of a burned house. The houses at the site are semisubterranean

structures of wattle and daub construction. Roofs were made of grass thatch, and

river cane was used for wattle, as well as making mats. The Hovey Lake village site is located

at the confluence of the Wabash River and the Ohio River, and is part of the Late Mississippian

culture referred to as Caborn-Welborn (A.D. 1400 -1700). The goal of the analysis is to identify

plants that could have been processed and utilized in association with the ceramic bowl and

grinding stone submitted for plant starch and plant phytolith analysis.
