Summary

Site 26CH3345 is a near surface Late Archaic (Rosegate) site situated in the Carson Lake basin in Churchill County, Nevada. Excavations exposed a basalt bowl mortar with burned contents resting on top of a steep-sided, flat based ash stain presumed to be a cooking feature. The mortar was submitted for phytolith, starch, and organic residue (FTIR) analysis and AMS radiocarbon dating. Soil controls were also submitted for pollen, phytolith, and starch analysis. Results from this analysis address subsistence practices associated with cooking or grinding in the bowl and at the feature.
