POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITES 42SA27020 AND 42SA27022, SAN JUAN COUNTY, UTAH
Sites 42SA27020 and 42SA27022 were recorded by Montgomery Archaeological Consultants as part of the MOAC 17-083 project in the Spanish Valley, approximately 9.5 mi southeast of the city of Moab, San Juan County, Utah. At Site 42SA27020, Montgomery archaeologists recorded a structure and associated midden, which was discovered in association with Pueblo II-III cultural materials, including three Mesa Verde Grey Ware ceramic body sherds (Jessica DelBozque, personal communication, December 21, 2018). Four sediment samples (Samples 432, 563, 571, and 573) from fill or use/activity surfaces were collected by Montgomery and submitted to PaleoResearch Institute for pollen analysis. A further three sediment samples (Samples 304, 431, and 569) were recovered from feature fills and submitted for macrofloral analysis.
Montgomery recognized Site 42SA27022 as a possible subsurface structure and associated artifact scatter. The artifact scatter at Site 42SA27022 included cultural materials affiliated with the Pueblo II-III Periods, such as a San Juan Red Ware sherd and a Mesa Verde Black-on-White Ware sherd. A single sample (Sample 36) was collected from Site 42SA27022 and submitted to PaleoResearch Institute for pollen analysis.
