Summary

Seven soil samples were collected from features at the Palisades Site (AZ C:13:0099)

for flotation and macrofloral analysis. This site is located along the Colorado River corridor in

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona. The site is believed to exhibit two components. The

earlier component is represented by a shallow thermal feature (Feature 13) and associated

strata. Charcoal recovered during macrofloral analysis of the fill from Feature 13 was

processed for AMS radiocarbon dating and revealed a late Basketmaker III/early Pueblo I age

for this component. The remaining six features are believed to be associated with an Early

Pueblo II (AD 1000-1075) component. Macrofloral analysis will be used to provide information

concerning plant resources utilized by the site occupants.
