Summary

Paynes Creek Bluff, CA-TEH-2461/H, Tehama County, California, is a bluff-top site containing a rock wall, eight rock enclosures, and two rock cairns, as well as a historic wire fence (Eric Ritter, personal communication April 3, 2015). A metate, designated Feature 4, was recovered from Structure 5 (circa 1-2 cmbs) and submitted for pollen, starch, and phytolith analyses to provide information regarding plant processing. Pollen, starch, and protein residue analyses were conducted on a second milling stone from the adjoining walls between rock enclosures 4 and 5 to enhance information regarding plant and animal subsistence practices at the site.
