Summary

Samples from the Dickerson Street and Water Works sites north of Albany, New York,

were submitted for pollen, phytolith, macrofloral, protein, and organic residue analysis, along

with companion charcoal identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. Samples are to be

examined in two stages. Selected samples are to be analyzed first, and preliminary results are

to be reported to the client before beginning the analyses on the remainder of the samples. In

stage one, sediments from the Dickerson Street site were selected for pollen and phytolith

analysis, along with chert points for protein analysis and fire-cracked rock for organic residue

analysis. Sediments from the Water Works site were also chosen for pollen and phytolith

analysis, in addition to being examined for botanical remains. Macrofloral analysis is planned

for feature fill from this site, and materials are expected to be selected for AMS radiocarbon

dating, along with identified charcoal samples. Lithic tools also from the Water Works site were

submitted for protein analysis, and fire-cracked rock and ceramics were submitted for organic

residue analysis (FTIR).
