AMS RADIOCARBON DATING AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM SITE 14OT5-H2, OTTAWA COUNTY, KANSAS (2013)

DOCUMENT [ID: 394013] Linda Scott Cummings. Peter Kováčik.

A possible bison bone fragment was recovered from House 2 of the Minneapolis site, 14OT5, situated in Ottawa County, Kansas.
