Summary

Three samples representing two controls and one hearth feature from a basin house (Structure 1) were submitted for phytolith and starch grain analysis from site 5MF3012. This site is located in northwestern Colorado along the Yampa River, and has yielded evidence for multiple Archaic Period occupations, as well as a Late Prehistoric component. This microbotanical analysis was undertaken to better understand some of the plant resources utilized by the Archaic Period site occupants.
