Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Minnis analyzed the Late Pithouse macrobotanical remains from the Mimbres Foundation excavations. Minnis notes that a regional comparison of the fuelwood shows anthropogenic environmental change, the presence of common reeds indicates a higher water table than at present, and the large number of weed seeds may indicate either they were more important to the diet than previously thought or that, since these weed seeds are produced in enormous quantities, they have peen accidentally charred and deposited. Still 'the seed remains suggest a relatively intensive agricultural economy with the use of many naturally available resources.' (page 199).
