DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

Charcoal from a buried hearth exposed in an arroyo wall at the Broadway Site, 02-278, was submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This site is located in Brewster County, Texas. The charcoal was recovered from within the exposed feature rocks.


IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARCOAL FROM A HEARTH AT THE PERDIZ TRAIL SITE (02-269), TEXAS (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

Charcoal from the fill of a small hearth at the Perdiz Trail Site (02-269) was submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This small site is located in Brewster County, Texas. It contains small hearths and associated lithic artifacts and is believed to have been occupied for a short amount of time during the Late Prehistoric Cielo Complex, around AD 1300-1700. Identification of charcoal will identify types of wood burned as fuel in this hearth and the best possible material for...


IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARCOAL FROM THE CUB SPRINGS NUMBER ONE SITE (BIBE-153), BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, TEXAS (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

Charcoal from the fill of a shallow, basin hearth at the Cub Springs Number One Site (BIBE-153) in southern Brewster County, Texas, was collected for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This site contains several thermal features and a fire-cracked rock midden. This site appears to be a multicomponent site with at least Late Archaic and Transitional Late Archaic occupations, based upon recovery of dart points. Charcoal was recovered from a thin bed of charcoal underlying a pavement of...

IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARCOAL FROM THE TRAVELER SITE (02-389), TEXAS (2012)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

A charcoal sample from the Traveler Site, 02-389, was submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. The site is located in Brewster County, Texas. This general area experienced multiple occupations including Paleoindian, Early Archaic, and Middle Archaic. Charcoal was recovered from a buried cultural lens. Identification of charcoal provides information concerning types of wood burned as fuel by the site occupants, while an AMS radiocarbon date provides temporal information.


IDENTIFICATION OF WOOD AND CHARCOAL FROM THE CALENDAR SITE (41BS1517), BREWSTER COUNTY, TEXAS (2009)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman. Melissa K. Logan.

Five charcoal samples were submitted for identification from the Calendar Site (41BS1517) in Brewster County, Texas. It is hoped that identification of these samples will enrich the environmental database of available plant resources for the eastern Trans-Pecos region during the early Archaic period.

POLLEN, PROTEIN, AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS AT 41BS611, BIG BEND NATIONAL PARK, TEXAS (2003)
DOCUMENT Full-Text R.A. Varney. Kathryn Puseman. Linda Scott Cummings.

Fill from two features at Site 41BS611 in Big Bend National Park, Texas, were examined for pollen and macrofloral remains. Two ground stone samples also were washed to recover pollen/starches, while 20 flaked stone artifacts were analyzed for possible protein residues. This site is noted to be a large, open campsite containing stone-paved hearths and a lithic scatter. Diagnostic artifacts suggest Middle Archaic, Late Archaic, and Late Prehistoric occupations, while radiocarbon dates from three...
