POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, MACROFLORAL, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING AT SITES LA 36985, LA 151313, LA 151320, LA 151324, AND LA 151384 ON THE FORT BLISS MILITARY RESERVATION, NEW MEXICO

Summary

Samples from five sites on the Fort Bliss Military Reservation in Otero County, New

Mexico, were examined for pollen, starch, phytoliths, macrofloral remains, and/or organic

residues, the latter using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). These sites were

sampled as part of Delivery Order 36. Charcoal and a burned corn kernel from twelve of the

macrofloral samples were AMS radiocarbon dated. In addition to providing radiocarbon dates to

understand the archaeological chronology, this study examines evidence for subsistence at

these sites.
