STARCH, POLLEN, AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF A BOWL AND GRINDING STONE FROM THE HOVEY LAKE SITE (12PO10), POSEY COUNTY, INDIANA
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.
