Summary

Fragments of Thuja plicata (western red cedar) bark from the High Bar Cache, site 10IH3488, in Hells Canyon, Idaho, were submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating. This cache consists of a greenstone pestle, a wooden tool, and textiles stored under a cairn in a boulder overhang, which is believed to represent a cache of a woman’s equipment and possessions. AMS radiocarbon dates were obtained on fragments of inner cedar bark from a woven mat and from a large bundle of bark.
