Summary

Eight archaeological sites along the Anadarko Howell Salt Creek CO2 Pipeline project

were sampled for pollen to identify paleoenvironmental conditions along this transect in central

Wyoming. In addition, pollen analysis of housepit floors and ground stone addresses questions

of subsistence. Use of the Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) assists in

identifying subsistence patterns at these sites through identification of organic residue from

samples representing hearths, housepit floors, activity areas, and ground stone. Each of the

eight sites will be discussed individually before drawing conclusions and integrating the

information concerning the paleoenvironment and subsistence from these eight sites.
