POLLEN, STARCH, ORGANIC RESIDUE, AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF GROUNDSTONE AND FLAKED LITHICS FROM TWO ARCHAIC SITES (42SA24414 AND 42SA21484) IN SAN JUAN COUNTY, UTAH

Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings; Chad Yost

Year: 2008

Summary

Archaeobotanical and organic residue analysis was conducted on a metate, mano, two

lithic artifacts, and associated soil controls from sites 42SA21484 and 42SA24114, located in

San Juan County, Utah. Site 42SA21484 is an Archaic period lithic scatter, and site

42SA24114 is an Early Archaic lithic quarry and lithic scatter with a historic component. The

project area lies within two vegetation communities, the pinyon-juniper woodland and the

sagebrush community. Pollen, phytolith, organic residue (FTIR), and protein residue analysis

will provide plant and animal subsistence data, as well as some resource availability

information.
