Summary

A soil sample from the Smith Site (A09111.000369), located in Malta, Saratoga County, New York, was examined for pollen, phytolith, and macrofloral remains, as well as protein and organic residues. Samples were tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). This historic site dates from the latter half of the 19th century (Adam Luscier, personal communication, January 21, 2011). Pollen, phytolith, macrofloral, protein, and organic residue (FTIR) analyses provide subsistence information concerning plant and animal resources utilized by the various occupants of these sites, as well as the function of the feature from which the soil was removed.
