Summary

Four samples of Zea mays cupules were submitted from hearth contexts at New Caves

Pueblo (NA486) and Bench Pueblo (NA16) for AMS radiocarbon dating. New Caves Pueblo

and Bench Pueblo are located on O’Neill Crater, a cinder cone near Flagstaff, Arizona.

Samples were submitted to determine if the sites were occupied contemporaneously. The

samples submitted for AMS dating all came from macrofloral flotation samples and consisted of

Zea mays cupule fragments. Zea mays was chosen for dating because it represents both an

annual species and a cultivar.
