Summary

Five botanic samples were submitted for identification from Cave #5 at the Paisley 5 Mile Ridge Caves site (35LK3400) in southern Oregon. Four of the samples appear to represent vegetal matter that has been twisted, while the fifth sample represents a seed removed from a coprolite found in Late Pleistocene age deposits. The Paisley Caves appear to have been used most often as cache locations which were infrequently occupied for short periods of time. Lithic artifacts in the cave suggest that use of the caves occurred during the Late Pleistocene, Early Holocene (Haskett points), Middle Holocene (Elko points), and Late Holocene (Rose Spring and Desert Side Notch). The vegetal samples were sent to determine the material of each specimen and if it was processed by humans.
