Summary

Sediment samples from site CA-SBA-1010 on Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, were

floated to recover macrofloral remains. Individual charcoal/wood samples also were submitted for

identification. Macrofloral analysis is used to provide information concerning plant resources

available to and utilized by the occupants of this site. Two mortars also were washed for phytoliths

to recover evidence of plants processed using these tools. Radiocarbon dates suggest that the

site was occupied from the late Early Period through the middle part of the Middle Period (1100

B.C. and A.D. 700).
