Summary

Samples from stratigraphic columns associated with earth ovens at sites CA-LAN-1359

and CAL-LAN-3018 in southern California were examined for macrofloral remains. Charcoal

and botanic samples also were submitted for identification, and charcoal in three samples from

CA-LAN-3018 were AMS radiocarbon dated. These sites are located along Upper Big Tujunga

Creek in the Angeles National Forest, Las Angeles County. They represent multi-functional

sites used for procurement and processing of lithic materials and food resources. Macrofloral

analysis will be used to provide subsistence information concerning plant resources utilized by

the various occupants of these sites.
