Summary

Stratigraphic sediment samples and macrofloral remains from the Brokepick Mountain

site, 48SW16725, Sweetwater County, Wyoming were examined to recover pollen and

phytoliths. In addition, AMS radiocarbon dating was conducted. Excavation at the site by

CRAI, Inc. revealed a dark stain that was thought to represent a house pit; however, further

analysis suggests that this feature might be a buried A-horizon within a Folsom Age drainage

area. The goal of this current work is to provide additional analysis of the dark stain feature, as

well as to provide a better understanding of the paleoenvironment at this site.
