Bedrock Mortar (Material Keyword)
1-4 (4 Records)
Thirty-one protein residue washes recovered in the field from bedrock mortars were tested against acorn (oak, Quercus sp.) antiserum. These samples had been tested previously against various antisera at another lab, but were submitted to PaleoResearch specifically for testing against acorn antiserum.
PROTEIN AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF A PESTLE FROM SITE CA-TUO-4818, YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, CALIFORNIA (2010)
A granite pestle and an associated soil control sample recovered from Feature 2, an exposed, low-lying granite bedrock milling station at Site CA-TUO-4818 in Yosemite National Park, California, were submitted for protein and organic residue analysis. The pestle was tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), and for protein residue using cross-over immunoelectrophoresis (CIEP).
PROTEIN RESIDUE (CIEP) AND STARCH ANALYSIS OF BEDROCK MILLING SURFACES FROM SITES CA-SDI-21073, CA-SDI-21074, AND CA-SDI-21114, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (2017)
Three prehistoric sites, CA-SDI-21073, CA-SDI-21074, and CA-SDI-21114, are situated in northern San Diego County, California and is part of the Valley Ranch Center Project. The Valley Ranch Center Project location is west of Valley Center Road, south of Lilac Road, and north of Woods Valley Road. All three sites are located in the northeast corner within the Valley Center Project location. Site CA-SDI-21073 is located northwest of Site CA-SDI-21074 and west of CA-SDI-21114, whereas Site...
PROTEIN RESIDUE ANALYSIS OF BEDROCK MILLING FEATURE WASH SAMPLES FROM THE BTC MILLING SITE, P-33-11224, RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (2010)
Washes from three bedrock milling features (mortars) and a surface control sample were submitted for protein residue analysis from the BTC Milling Site, P-33-11224, located in Riverside County, California, near the community of French Valley. The goal of the analysis is to identify any plant, animal, and insect protein residues that may be present on the use surfaces of three non-portable bedrock milling features.
