Summary

Site 48CR9375, located in the eastern portion of the Washakie Basin, includes several open-air, hearth-tethered activity areas. Radiocarbon dates of 5850 ± 40 BP, 5350 ± 40 BP, and 5760 ± 40 BP were returned on two hearths and an isolated feature, respectively, indicating occupation at the end of the Great Divide phase and beginning of the Opal phase of the Early Archaic Period. A piece of groundstone recovered from an activity area adjacent to Feature 9, an unlined basin hearth, and a control sample were submitted for pollen and starch analysis to identify foods ground.
