Summary

Ceramics and soil samples, as well as a single flaked lithic artifact, were submitted for

pollen, starch, phytolith and/or organic residue analysis (FTIR) from three sites (23LE348,

23LE179/357, 23CK57) associated with the Avenue of the Saints Project (AOS), located in both

Lewis and Clark Counties, northeastern Missouri. The AOS archaeological survey has

uncovered a multitude of prehistoric sites with Late Archaic, Woodland, and historic cultural

affiliations. PRI has previously analyzed samples from several of these sites, including

archaeoclimatic modeling and paleoenvironmental analysis for sites 23LE327 (Cummings and

Eksambekar 2005), 23CK57 (Cummings 2008), 23LE174 (Cummings, et al. 2007), and

23CK302 (Cummings, et al. 2007). For this current analysis, samples submitted are associated

with cultural components that span a period from Middle Woodland to Historic occupation

periods. The results of this analysis may provide a better understanding of food resources

utilized, and in the case of the pollen and phytolith analysis, may also provide a highly localized

environmental information.
