Summary

Five macrofloral samples were examined from rooms at Granary House (AZ A:14:46).

Macrofloral and botanic samples also were recovered from rooms at nearby Lava Ridge Ruin

(AZ A:14:50). These sites are located on the Shivwits Plateau in northeastern Arizona. A pot

cache at Lava Ridge Ruin, consisting of a conglomerate of pots broken one on top of the other,

was sampled for pollen and macrofloral remains, as well as for organic residues using Fourier

Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). A small seed jar found 30 cm to the side of the pot

cache also was sampled for pollen and using FTIR. Pollen and macrofloral analysis will be

used to provide information concerning use of plants, both native and cultivated, by the

occupants of these two sites. FTIR analysis may address use of both plants and animals.
