Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings; Kathryn Puseman

Summary

A total of fourteen samples from hearth features at sites 5MF6871, 5MF6872, and

5MF6806 were examined for pollen, starch, and macrofloral remains. These sites were

encountered during well pad construction in Powder Wash, Colorado. Radiocarbon dates

suggest Settled Period and Pioneer Period (both Early Archaic) occupations at 5MF6806,

Settled Period and Aspen Tradition (Formative Era) occupations at 5MF6871, and Pioneer

Period and Aspen Tradition occupations at 5MF6872. Pollen, starch, and macrofloral analyses

were undertaken to provide information concerning plant food processing activities at these

sites.
