Summary

Pollen and macrofloral samples were collected from two Archaic and two

Anasazi sites in the Navajo Mine area of northern New Mexico. The sites are

located south of the San Juan River in a marginal area for agricultural

pursuits. Marginality of the environment has been a concern in

archaeological studies from this area (Hogan and Winter 1983:7-11; Winter

and Moore 19--:3-4). Analysis of pollen and macrofloral remains from these

sites was oriented toward answering questions within the research design

proposed for archaeological mitigation of these sites, including subsistence

in a marginal environment. Few pollen and macrofloral samples represent the

Archaic sites in this study. Analysis of these data bases was designed to

identify subsistence elements at the site. Analysis of pollen and

macrofloral remains from two Anasazi sites provides a larger data base to

examine the interplay between foraging and horticulture.
