AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF BONE AND CHARCOAL FROM THE MACHAFFIE SITE (24JF4), WEST-CENTRAL, MONTANA (2009)
Bone and carbon-enriched sediments from the MacHaffie Site (24JF4) in west-central Montana were submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating.
During field excavations in February 2016, numerous stratigraphic sediment samples were collected. Three of these were selected for AMS radiocarbon analysis to include dates on both shell and organics in the form of humates (soil organic matter or SOM) or charcoal, if any could be recovered. Sufficient quantities of sediments were collected from each location to allow pollen and/or phytolith analysis, either as part of the first batch of samples examined or for examination at a later date. In...
Several stratigraphic columns were sampled in the cut bank at Rio del Oso to recover pollen and phytoliths that will provide a signal of regional and local vegetation through time. This vegetation is expected to be a reflection of both natural and cultural events. Radiocarbon ages are available for many levels, providing tight dating for the stratigraphic columns. The pollen record was examined to provide evidence of changes in both regional and local vegetation, while the phytolith record was...
A total of 50 botanical specimens from archaeological excavations at Trinidad Lake, Colorado, were identified. Six of these samples consist of corn cob fragments that were measured, while the remaining samples represent a mixture of seeds and charcoal. Macrofloral analysis was undertaken as part of a thesis project with the hope of identifying possible native and cultivated resources utilized by the site occupants and possibly to determine the past method used to recover these samples.
Archaeological Data Recovery at Site 48SW1242: Labarge Natural Gas Project, Appendix E: Pollen Analysis (1986)
Pollen analysis was undertaken at 48SW1242, 4b, in connection with archaeological mitigation. This site is located at an elevation of 6450 ft in the Shute Creek Drainage Basin at the extreme western edge of Sweetwater County. Three components were recorded at the site. The later two components range in age from 1550 to 2170 B.P. Two stratigraphic columns, which combine to represent the entire period of occupation, were sampled for pollen to assess the paleoenvironment. In addition, samples...
Archaeological Data Recovery at the Harrower Site (48SU867): Labarge Natural Gas Project, Appendix E: Pollen Analysis (1997)
The Harrower site (48SU867) is located along both sides of Dry Piney Creek in the Overthrust Belt of Sublette County, southwestern Wyoming. This multicomponent site exhibits cultural material dating between 13,620 B.P. and 280 B.P. Pollen samples from a stratigraphic column were collected and analyzed at 5 cm intervals and represent the paleoenvironment from approximately 12,000 B.P. to 9000 B.P., and 3300 B.P. to the present. In addition, a single sample from the moss underlying this column...

This is the artifact database for the 'Field School at Sites 12G9 and 12G10 1975-1976' collection, stored at the Applied Archaeology Laboratories, Ball State University, Indiana.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Louisville District archaeological collections were sent to the Veterans Curation Program’s (VCP) St. Louis laboratory in May 2011. The VCP St. Louis laboratory is a USACE, St. Louis District’s Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections program, which is staffed through Brockington and Associates, Inc., an archaeological contract firm located in Norcross, Georgia. The procedures employed by the St. Louis VCP...
AVENUE OF THE SAINTS, MISSOURI: SUMMARY OF CLIMATE MODELS AND PALEOENVIRONMENT USING STRATIGRAPHIC POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH RECORDS (2010)
Sediment samples, collected from stratigraphic columns from three sites (23Ck57, 23Ck302, and 23Le174), were examined for pollen and phytoliths to provide information concerning the paleoenvironment along the Avenue of the Saints corridor in northeastern Missouri. The time periods represented by these stratigraphic samples include the Late Pleistocene at the base of 23Ck57, the Middle Holocene (6300-5500 BP) at 23Le174, and approximately 3510-2550 BP at 23Ck302. The samples 23Ck57 and 23Le174...
Twenty-eight artifacts from Site 41CS151 in northeastern Texas were analyzed for possible blood residues. Immunological studies have shown that protein residues from a tool's surface can be identified using modified forensic procedures. In addition, a soil sample from a culturally darkened area (an apparent anthrosol) and a control sample from the modern A horizon of a column were examined for the presence of phytoliths. A groundstone fragment was washed to recover pollen from the grinding...
Two bulk soil samples from the Dumay section of the Enriquillo-Plantain Garden Fault zone in Haiti were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon age determination. These samples were recovered from a buried A horizon in a natural exposure of the fault. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated.
An archaeological survey and data enhancement project at Brookville Lake was conducted to determine the nature, density, and distribution of archaeological resources located on the property. The project was carried out through a review of recorded sites, a reconnaissance survey of portions of the shoreline and limited testing of Glidewell Mound.
An archaeological investigation of Brookville Reservoir was led by Beth Kolbe of Applied Archaeology Laboratories, Ball State University during 1991 and 1992. Brookville Reservoir spans Franklin and Union counties and is located along the east fork of the Whitewater River in the Whitewater drainage. Archaeological investigation of the Brookville Reservoir were performed to evaluate the nature and significance of sites in the area, determine how sites were being impacted by shoreline erosion,...
The Buffalo Hump Site: Late Prehistoric Occupation in the Great Divide Basin Wyoming, Appendix E: Pollen Analysis (1989)
Site 48SW5057 is located in the northern portion of the Great Divide Basin in Sweetwater County, Wyoming. The site is situated on a sand sheet between sandstone outcrop ridge spurs at an approximate elevation of 6800 ft. Pollen samples were collected from this site during archaeological mitigation to examine both the paleoenvironment and subsistence. Two separate stratigraphic columns were sampled at 32 samples were taken from features to examine the subsistence base. Occupation at this site...
CHARCOAL AND WOOD IDENTIFICATION, MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF SAMPLES FROM THE FRIANT DAM, CALIFORNIA (2011)
A total of nineteen bulk soil samples, fourteen detrital charcoal samples, and one wood sample from along the San Joaquin River near Fresno, California, were examined to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon dating. These samples were recovered from Holocene alluvium in soil pits downstream of Friant Dam and from auger holes in slackwater deposits upstream of the dam. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon-datable material was...
CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF A SAMPLE FROM SITE LA 183591, EDDY COUNTY, NEW MEXICO (2016)
Site LA 183591, an artifact scatter with a burned caliche concentration, lies along the east facing slope of Nimenim Ridge in Eddy County, New Mexico. Fill from the burned caliche feature with charcoal staining was submitted for macrofloral analysis to recover and identify charred floral remains suitable for AMS radiocarbon analysis.
CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF SAMPLES FROM SITE SAR 1, BEXAR COUNTY, TEXAS (2011)
Three samples of sediment containing charcoal flecks were submitted for extraction of charcoal, charcoal identification, and AMS radiocarbon dating.

Charcoal samples were recovered from the fill from two features at the Paired-Features Site, 41PS735, in west Texas. These charcoal samples were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. The site consists of a multi-component open campsite containing a large ring midden, roasting facilities, a possible tipi ring, and scatters of prehistoric and historic artifacts. Recovery of a single corner-notched dart point suggests a Late Archaic component. Charcoal identification determined...
