Summary

Samples from sites 42Dc1412 and 42Dc1340 in the Uintah Mountains of the Ashley

National Forest were submitted for pollen, phytolith, macrofloral, and organic residue (FTIR)

analyses. Pollen and phytolith analysis will identify plants that are part of the local and regional

vegetation communities. Examination of three pieces of groundstone and two sediment

samples using FTIR analysis to identify organic residues was undertaken to recover evidence

of plant processing. Macrofloral analysis of sediment samples from each of these sites also will

provide information concerning types of wood burned as fuel and possible subsistence

information. An AMS radiocarbon date was obtained for charcoal from each of the macrofloral

samples. A single botanic specimen from site 42Dc1342 also was submitted for identification.
