Summary

Two archaeological sites in Canyonlands National Park, southeast Utah, were examined. Site 42SA26111 consists of five small overhang rockshelters and a dense artifact scatter dating from the late Pueblo II and Pueblo III period. A groundstone from a rockshelter at 42SA26111 was washed to recover pollen and starches that would represent food processing. Site 42WN2658 is a single-room habitation structure with an associated artifact scatter with corrugated sherds suggesting a Pueblo II/Pueblo III Mesa Verde affiliation. Fill from the floor of a room structure at site 42WN2658 was examined for pollen, starch, and

macrofloral remains to identify foods processed. Pollen, starch, and macrofloral analyses are used to provide information concerning plant resources available to and utilized by the occupants of these sites.
