Summary

Five samples that included three pieces of groundstone, recovered from the buried surface of Stratum MV-7 in Area DW at Monte Verde II, dated to approximately 12,500 BP, were examined for pollen, phytoliths, and starch. Sediment also was collected from an ash/charcoal stain across the creek at Monte Verde I. It also was removed from Stratum MV-7, but was more deeply buried (1.3 m). A sample also was collected from a buried use surface in a ridged agricultural field at PaiCavi and was examined for pollen, phytolith and starch analyses. This area dates to approximately AD 1300.
