MACROFLORAL, POLLEN, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES FOR SITES AZ A:14:46 (GRANARY HOUSE) AND AZ A:14:50 (LAVA RIDGE RUIN) FOR THE SHIVWITS RESEARCH PROJECT, ARIZONA
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.
