Summary

Site 48CR310 contains evidence of multiple occupations along the northeastern margin of the Ferris Mountains in central Wyoming. Component 1, an intensive occupation, represents a short-term bison processing camp. Component 2 represents an ephemeral occupation. Four stratigraphic samples were examined for pollen evidence of vegetation and fill from a thermal basin was examined for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). FTIR analysis provides information concerning the compounds that were extracted from the feature fill, and hence, information concerning foods that might have been processed in association with this thermal feature.
