Summary

Samples from subfloor features in a Fremont pithouse excavated at site 42DC769 in

northeast Utah were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains, as well as for organic

residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). A pollen control was collected

from the modern surface. In addition, the fill from five extramural features was examined using

FTIR. This site is located in Nine Mile Canyon, known for its numerous rock art panels. Pollen

and macrofloral analyses will be used to provide subsistence information concerning plant

resources utilized by the pithouse occupants, while FTIR will address the presence of organic

residues that might represent both plants and animals.
