POLLEN, PROTEIN RESIDUE, ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR), AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF ARTIFACTS AND CHARCOAL FROM SITES LA 30023, LA 91050, LA 91057, LA 91067, LA 91136, LA 91143, LA 91153, AND LA 92546, DOÑA ANA COUNTY, NEW MEXICO

Summary

Eight sites located on Ft. Bliss, including one open-air campsite and seven sites located

in interdunal areas interspersed with blowouts are the subject of this study. All sites are located

in Doña County, New Mexico and include LA 30023, LA 91050, LA 91057, LA 91067, LA 91136,

LA 91143, LA 91153, and LA 92546. Samples from these sites were examined for pollen and

organic residues, the latter using FTIR. Pollen analyses will be used to provide subsistence

information concerning plant resources utilized by the various occupants of this site. Organic

and protein residue analysis will be used to investigate possible plant and animal resources

utilized by the site occupants.
