Summary

Sediment samples collected from 1997 University of Oregon summer field school excavations in the Fort Rock Basin at Sites 35LK2736, 1028-7PC, 1028-13DJ, 1028-14GP1, 1028-14GP2, and 1028-8USA were floated to recover charred macrofloral remains. Charcoal from these sites also was identified. Site 35LK2736 is located on the shore of Silver Lake, and diagnostic artifacts suggest that the site was occupied periodically throughout prehistory. The presence of large boulder house rings suggest relatively permanent village occupations (Jenkins 1994:213, 236). The remaining sites are believed to represent playa villages that appear to have been satellites of a larger village in the uplands east of Silver Lake. Macrofloral analysis is used to provide information concerning plant resources available to and utilized by the various occupants of these sites, including types of wood used in building the house structures and plant resources that may have been processed/consumed.
