AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF SHELL FROM A SHELL MIDDEN AT SITE DuRu-1, VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA. (2013)
A shell sample was submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating from site DcRu-1,a resource processing area, in southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The sample was recovered from an intact shell midden or processing pit located underneath a built up disturbance zone. AMS radiocarbon dating will provide temporal information for use of this feature, which is believed to have been during the last 2500 years.
