POLLEN, MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN AND AMS RADIOCARBON ANALYSIS OF ARTIFACTS AND BOTANICAL REMAINS FROM THE SAND HOLLOW 2 PROJECT SITES: 42WS3544, 42WS3552, 42WS3554, 42WS3557, 42WS3559, 42WS4197, 42WS4198, 42WS4242, 42WS4247, 42WS4251, AND 42WS4682, WASHINGTON COUNTY, UTAH

Summary

Samples from sites 42WS3544, 42WS3552, 42WS3554, 42WS3557, 42WS3559,

42WS4197, 42WS4198, 42WS4242, 42WS4251, 42WS4682, and 42WS4247 in the Sand

Hollow 2 Project area of Washington, County, southwest Utah, were examined for pollen,

macrofloral, protein, and organic residues, the latter using Fourier Transform Infrared

Spectroscopy (FTIR). Pollen, protein and macrofloral analyses will be used to provide

subsistence information concerning plant resources utilized by the various occupants of these

sites. FTIR and protein residue analysis will be used to provide information concerning organic

residues present on the groundstones. Two botanical samples were submitted for

identification, and one of these, a corn cob fragment, was AMS radiocarbon dated.
