Recent single-particle inclusive measurements and two-particle correlation data from E802 and its succesor, E859, are presented. The K+/π+ ratio observed for collisions of 14.6 A·GeV 28Si ions on various targets is presented as a function of both forward and transverse energy. Source sizes are determined via interferometry using π+, π-, K+ and proton pairs.
