Archaeological Pollen Analyses from North-central Wisconsin

Author(s): James Schoenwetter

Year: 1966


Study of 30 surface and 18 archaeological-context pollen samples was undertaken to assess the potential for further archaeological palynology research. Surface sample analysis allows palynological recognition of eight habitat types ranging from dry and cold through wet and moist to dry and warm. Comparison of fossil and modern surface pollen data suggests the character of paleoecological change sequences at 4 sites, a positive potential for inter-site and intra-site relative cross-dating, and a positive potential for inter-regional dating on paleoclimatic grounds.
