Ceramic residue (Material Keyword)
1-3 (3 Records)
Residue from the bowl of a Late Woodland period clay pipe found at the Military Academy Site in Niantic, Connecticut was submitted for phytolith and organic residue analysis to gain information regarding materials smoked. AMS radiocarbon dating was performed on this residue to obtain a date for the use of the pipe. In addition, the residue was tested for the presence of organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy.
POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, STARCH AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF A SOAPSTONE VESSEL FROM SITE NA-CA-SBA-204-1, SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, CALIFORNIA (2016)
A soapstone vessel recovered in a Santa Ynez Valley as part of a burial (13) of a woman aged 35–50. Radiocarbon dates of 802 ± 24 and 929 ± 23 RCYBP on shell recovered from a nearby burial have been reservoir corrected to 1659–1875 and 1507–1679 A.D., respectively. Charred food residue recovered from the interior of the soapstone vessel was studied to determine its contents. This vessel was recovered from Los Padres National Forest and curated at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum. Samples...
POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, STARCH, AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF A STEATITE BOWL FROM HORSETOOTH RESERVOIR, COLORADO (2012)
A steatite bowl found at Horsetooth Reservoir, northern Colorado, was washed to recover pollen, phytoliths, and starches. An area of thin residue from the interior of the bowl was examined for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Charred residue from the bowl exterior also was examined for organic residues and was submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating.
