Starch residue analysis of Palaeolithic stones: Tobitakyu-kita site

From July 26th to 27th, I went to survey stone artefacts found from the Tobitakyu-kita site (JAPANESE) at the Tobitakyu-kita compartment of Tokyo Prefectural Archaeological Research Center (JAPANESE).

During these days, I took residue samples from 15 Palaeolithic stone tools (about 20,000 years ago) for my starch residue analysis.

Among them, how many starch grains can I extract from these sampled stones? Also, which kind of plant remains can I find from them? I'm looking forward to seeing these samples.
