Micro sample 499


Sample A: Zea (maize) pollen was recovered from organic material in the deposit at a concentration of about 10.6 grains per gram from a total 16.2 gm of midden material (Hall 2010:129). As with the other samples at the site, the material dated included other micro-organic matter along with the maize pollen, though all from a very restricted sampling location within the woodrat midden.
