ANALYSIS OF POLLEN SAMPLES FROM HUACA PRIETA, PERU
Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings
Twelve pollen samples were examined from the 2007 excavation season at Huaca
Prieta, located on the north coast of Peru. Six of the pollen samples were recovered from
geological contexts and were examined to provide a record of the local vegetation through time.
The other six pollen samples were recovered from excavated contexts. The 2008 excavation
season yielded another ten pollen samples for analysis. These samples represent a Trinchera,
NS Bird Este, and Unidad 9. Like the samples from Unit 2, the samples from Unit 9 represent
the base of Huaca Prieta and include pre-mound and early mound levels. The other samples
from the 2008 excavation represent mound contexts, probably near the top of the mound.
