Summary

Protein (blood) residue analysis was conducted on a total of four lithic artifacts from the

Shippingport Site, 15JF702, located on the Ohio River at Louisville, Kentucky. The purpose of

this analysis is to detect animal protein residues that may be present on these artifacts as a

result of their use. In addition, two samples from an anomalous feature were submitted for

analysis and identification of the loose feature fill that was contained within a basin hearth with

an Early Woodland context. Fifteen ceramic sherds recovered from refuse pits at the site were

also submitted for pollen, starch, phytolith, and/or organic residue analysis and were tested for

the latter using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
