Summary

A prehistoric open campsite, 48SU2326, located east of Sand Draw on a rolling plain, was excavated in association with pipeline trench construction. A cultural horizon (Stratum IIb) yielded evidence of a single occupation represented by numerous thermal basins (Brent Buenger, personal communication April 8, 2015). One modern surface sample and three stratigraphic samples, representing the cultural stratum and the strata immediately below and above it, were submitted for pollen analysis to examine the past environment. Additionally, they provide an environmental baseline for interpreting the pollen and starch record from ten thermal features dating between 4810 ± 60 BP and 5790 ± 80 BP, indicating Late Archaic use (Brent Buenger, personal communication April 8, 2015).
