Micro sample 679


A pollen sample (Lab #579) collected from Operation V, Unit 18, Cuad S15, Feature 76, yielded 42 grains of maize pollen. A radiocarbon date was obtained on a sample of plant fiber from Feature 113 in the same Cuadrant, giving an closely associated indirect date for the pollen sample (Haas et al. 2013: Tables SI01 and SI02).
