ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) AND PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS FOR SAMPLES FROM SITES EfOo 134, EfOo 160, EjOp 6, FaOq 124, AND FaOq 125 FROM THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE PROJECT, ALBERTA, CANADA

Summary

Samples from sites EfOo 134, EfOo 160, EjOp 6, FaOq 124, and FaOq 125, discovered during reconnaissance for the Keystone XL Pipeline Project in southeastern Alberta, Canada, were submitted for organic and protein residue analyses. Organic residue analysis was performed on a long bone fragment, fill samples from four hearths and a pit feature, and associated soil control samples using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). A biface tip fragment and a Besant dart were examined for protein residues. These analyses are used to gain information regarding plant and animal utilization by the inhabitants of the sites.
