Site 48SW13143 (18-WAS-008) is located on the southeastern slope of a northeast/southwest-trending low ridge complex in the Washakie Basin of Sweetwater County, Wyoming. During data recovery excavation in connection with the Mountain Gas Resources Caprock 1599-23-41H Pipeline Evaluative Testing, three sub-surface basin hearth features, including Features 1 and 3, were discovered within an area (ca. 8 x 6 m) containing four previously recorded, scattered hearth features and a possible ash dump with rubbish. Radiocarbon age determination of charcoal from Feature 1 yielded 2530 ± 30 RCYBP (Beta-452411), indicating a cultural affiliation with the Dead Man Wash phase of the Late Archaic period. This occupation was confirmed by three additional radiocarbon dates of 2470 ± 30, 2420 ± 30, and 2430 ± 30 BP. Four sediment samples from Site 48SW13143 were submitted for pollen analysis with the purpose of better understanding the environment at the site during its prehistoric occupation, as well as to reveal possible subsistence indicators.
