Summary

Fill from a roasting pit feature at site 42WS479 in southwest Utah was floated to recover

charred macrofloral remains. Charcoal from the sample was processed for AMS radiocarbon

dating. This site represents a relatively large open scatter with a very large thermal feature in

the center. Artifacts from the feature suggest a late Archaic occupation. Macrofloral analysis

will be used to provide information concerning plant resources utilized by the site occupants, as

well as a radiocarbon date of the wood burned in the feature.
