Summary

The Trade Winds Site (LA117405), an artifact scatter, lies in a dune blowout basin in Lea County, southeastern New Mexico. Fill from a thermal feature was submitted for macrofloral analysis to recover and identify charred floral remains, including charcoal, suitable for AMS radiocarbon age determination, then date the appropriate material. The sample is expected to date between AD 200 and AD 1400 reflecting Jornada Mogollon/Early Pithouse - Late Pueblo occupation (Stacy Galassini, personal communication June 29, 2017). In addition, macrofloral analysis will provide information on plant processing and fuel use by site occupants.
