Summary

An archaeological site located in the San Pedro River Valley, near Fairbank, Arizona, yielded two projectile points that were submitted for protein residue analysis to identify animals that might have been killed using these points. In addition, one of these points also was tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) in an effort to identify use of poisons. Finally, a single soil sample was submitted for pollen analysis. This sites lies in the Sonoran Desert at the edge of the Chihuauan Desert. These analyses are considered preliminary and are meant to assist in the selection of further samples for analysis.
