Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings

Year: 2015

Summary

Located on a highly undulating plain, amid interfluvial ridges and broad, shallow valleys, Site 48CR9599 represents a small prehistoric camp situated at the toe of a low, sand-covered hill in the Washakie Basin. Identified through 2009 WFS Coal Bank 5-50 pipeline monitoring, Site 48CR9599 lies between Sugarloaf Butte and Coal Bank Draw, demonstrating charcoal stained sediment dating to 1290 ± 40 BP, the Late Prehistoric Uinta phase. Subsequent testing identified six hearth features (Jan Crompton, personal communication March 9, 2015 ). Cultural materials recovered included stone tools, lithic debitage, bone, groundstone, and fire-cracked rock fragments. One mano wash and three hearth fill sediments were submitted for pollen and phytolith/starch analyses, respectively.
