Summary

Over the last 9 summers we have conducted extensive excavations at a rock shelter (Eagle Point) located above the Gunnison River in west central Colorado. The deposits are laddered and the macro botanical fill from the features indicates that from the Paleo Period to the last occupation in 200BP similar plant resources were available and exploited. There are some differences. We want to briefly present the differences and similarities in plant exploitation from the Paleo (13,000BP) through the Formative Period (500BP). This presentation will focus on dominate botanical materials utilized across time and offer some suggestions as to why some plant resources are not evident during certain time periods at this site.
