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...

Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. In addition, pollen, phytolith, and diatom analyses were conducted on one sample of charcoal in clay matrix (Station 129). Samples were collected from a trench at the downstream toe of the dam near the...

Charcoallbark fragments from eight of the samples and the two peat samples were submitted for AMS radiocarbon analysis. In addition, a wood section from a stump buried in a stream was...
EXAMINATION OF ORGANIC RESIDUES, BASKETRY, AND BOTANIC REMAINS FROM AZTEC RUINS, NEW MEXICO (2009)
Four residue samples from rooms in the West Ruin at Aztec Ruins, New Mexico, were examined to identify the contents of the residue. Two of these residue samples were collected from baskets. As appropriate, analysis of the residue samples included macrofloral examination and/or microscopic identification of starches and phytoliths. A botanic sample from Kiva D and material from the foundation of a coiled basketry ladle also were submitted for identification.
EXAMINATION OF TREE CORES FROM THE PILGRIM CREEK AREA OF GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, WYOMING (1997)
Eleven tree cores were taken from trees growing in abandoned channels of Pilgrim Creek in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. These cores were examined to identify the tree genus, when possible, and to estimate the approximate age of each tree.
FIBER AND WOOD IDENTIFICATION AT SEVERAL SITES ON THE ASHLEY NATIONAL FOREST, UTAH (2001)
Eighteen fiber and/or wood samples were submitted for identification from several sites on the Ashley National Forest. A combination of techniques was used in the identification of these remains, which included plant bundles, burden basket construction elements, snare wood and fibers, and other basket materials.
IDENTIFICATION AND AMS DATING OF WOOD FROM ENESE-ELKERÜLŐ, HUNGARY (2010)
Two samples of wood recovered from wells at Enese-Elkerülő, Hungary, were submitted for identification. In addition, portions of both wood fragments were processed for AMS radiocarbon dating.
IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARCOAL AND BOTANIC REMAINS FROM CAYLÁN, PV31-30, NORTHERN PERU (2012)
Two groups of charcoal/botanic samples from the Early Horizon site of Caylán (PV31-30), on the north-central coast of Peru, were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. Previous radiocarbon dates obtained from this site yielded two-sigma calibrated ages ranging between 800 BC and AD 20, reflecting occupation during the Early Horizon period. The first submission consisted of ten samples. Radiocarbon dates in Submission 1 were obtained from two charred maize cob fragments, two...
IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF WOOD AND CHARCOAL FROM LOGAN BOG, WASHINGTON (2010)
Three wood/charcoal samples from Logan Bog, Washington, were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating.
IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF WOOD FROM THE DEL VALLE LANDSLIDE, LIVERMORE, CALIFORNIA (2010)
A sample of wood from the Del Valle landslide in Livermore, California, was submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This wood was found in rock material older than 65,000 years.
IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF WOOD, ZEA MAYS COB, AND BONE FROM THE STAR CEILING CAVE SITE NEAR CUBA, NEW MEXICO AND ZEA MAYS COB MORPHOMETRICS (2011)
Woody twigs, Zea mays cob, and bone samples from the Star Ceiling Cave site near the town of Cuba, New Mexico, were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This site consists of a cave with a spring and numerous pictographs and mud-ball offerings. Pictographs in the cave are noted to represent Ancestral Puebloan/Puebloan culture as well as Navajo ceremonialism. Twigs were present in a mud-ball adhering to the top of the cave. Radiocarbon dating of the twigs provides information...
IDENTIFICATION OF CANOE WOOD FROM FLORIDA (2004)
Wood from a canoe of unknown cultural affiliation was submitted for identification. The canoe is over 100 years old. Identification of the wood used in manufacture of the canoe will be used to help determine cultural affiliation.
IDENTIFICATION OF CHARCOAL FROM SITE 41LY52 ON THE SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS, TEXAS (2002)
A total of 3 charcoal samples were submitted for wood identification from site 41LY52. This site is located on the Southern High Plains of west Texas. The charcoal samples were recovered from a pit believed to have been used for processing plant material within the last 1,000 years. Charcoal was examined to identify woods burned as fuel in the pit.
IDENTIFICATION OF CHARCOAL FROM THE AMPHITHEATER SITE, 41LU118, TEXAS (2001)
A total of 20 charcoal samples were submitted for wood identification from the Amphitheater Site (41LU118) in Yellowhouse Canyon, Lubbock, Texas. The site is geologically stratified, and samples were recovered from the uppermost two strata, which cover a time span from about 5,000 to 1,000 years ago. Charcoal samples were identified to determine types of wood burned as fuel at this site.
IDENTIFICATION OF CHARCOAL FROM THE CAPE KRUSENSTERN COMPLEX, ALASKA (2010)
A total of 89 additional charcoal and wood samples from the Cape Krusenstern beach ridge archaeological site complex were submitted for identification. This site complex is located within Cape Krusenstern National Monument in Northwest Alaska. Charcoal and wood fragments were examined in order to identify the types of wood available to and used by the prehistoric occupants of this site complex, as well as to provide identifications for charcoal samples submitted for radiocarbon dating.

Charcoal and wood fragments were submitted for identification from Menlo Park, California. These charcoal and wood fragments were found with hide fragments at a depth of 90 feet below the floor of the San Francisco Bay at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Bay Tunnel Project’s Ravenswood Shaft. Because samples were waterlogged, they were frozen prior to submission.
