Summary

Samples from stone rings at sites 32OL551 and 32OL552 in west-central North Dakota were examined for phytoliths and macrofloral remains to determine that plant resources were utilized by the occupants of these sites. Microscopic charcoal was extracted from the stone ring sediments and submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating, yielding three radiocarbon dates. Lithic tools from the stone rings at 32OL551 also were examined for protein residues to provide information concerning animals that may have been hunted/processed with these tools, while a charred piece of plant tissue from one of the rings was examined for possible phytoliths and starches.
