Summary

Sites 5LA03200, 5LA05698, 5LA10858, 5LA03384, and 5LA04399 are located within the Piñon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS) in Las Animas County, southeastern Colorado. Seven features encountered at these sites were sampled for macrofloral analysis (nine samples) and charcoal identification (three samples), to recover and identify charred floral remains and charcoal, indicating food and fuel related activities of prehistoric occupants of this region. Radiocarbon analysis was requested for suitable charred remains recovered and identified in seven of these samples to ascertain temporal affiliation of these features.
