Summary

Six chert projectile point fragments were submitted for protein residue analysis, along

with two probable smoking pipe fragments for pollen, phytolith, starch, and organic residue

analysis. As both pipe fragments belonged to the same pipe the fragment with the least

naturally occurring asphaltum on the exterior was selected for organic residue analysis, and

both fragments were used for pollen, phytolith, and starch analysis. The pipe fragment selected

for organic residue analysis was tested using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) to

determine materials being smoked.
