Summary

Fort Center, located in Glades County, Florida, provides evidence of Late Archaic; Early, Middle, and Late Woodland, Belle Glades, Calusa, Protohistoric, Seminole, and finally 19th and 20th century occupations. Thus, occupation at this 2.5 square km earthwork site dates between 800 BC and at least the late 1800s (Victor Thompson, personal communication, September 2010). Earlier work at this site included pollen analysis that reported consistent finds of Zea mays pollen. Verification or denial of the interpretation that maize was part of the local subsistence base was sought in this study. Two submissions of samples are discussed in this report. The first included eight samples to be examined for pollen and phytoliths, while the second consisted of four samples from the inner berm for pollen analysis only.
