Summary

Pollen, macrofloral, botanic, and protein residue samples were examined from site

42WS2227 in southwest Utah, representing a large, intensively looted Anasazi Pueblo with an

estimated Pueblo II occupation. Samples were submitted from two separate testing areas.

Samples from Test Area #1 (Feature 4) on the west side of the road were associated with an

adobe floor. Test Area #2 (Feature 9) in a disturbed/vandalized area east of the road contained

an adobe-floored structure, a possible structure below the adobe-floored structure, and a

human burial believed to have intruded through both of the structure features. Pollen and

macrofloral analyses will be used to provide information concerning plant resources available to

and utilized by the various occupants of this site, as well as items included as grave goods.

Tools from the burial pit will be analyzed for the presence of protein residues resulting from use

of these tools for processing/hunting animal resources.
