AMS RADIOCARBON DATES ON BONE SAMPLES FROM SHEEP ROCK SPRING (24JF292), JEFFERSON COUNTY, MONTANA (2013)
Sheep Rock Spring (24JF292) is a deeply stratified Middle to Early Precontact occupation site located northeast of Whitehall in Jefferson County, Montana. This stratified alluvial/colluvial locality is situated on the southeast-facing slope of Bull Mountain near Sheep Rock Spring in the Sheep Creek Valley. The spring is currently used as a water source for cattle. The existing radiocarbon chronology on bone indicates that the zone of fluctuating water table has introduced contaminants (Wilson...

Organic residue analysis on select sherds...
AMS RADIOCARBON DATING AND PHYTOLITH AND STARCH GRAIN ANALYSIS OF ORGANIC RESIDUE FROM A BESANT PHASE POTSHERD, MAINARD RANCH, 24LT505, MONTANA (2011)
A Besant phase potsherd with visible residue from site 24LT505 was submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating and phytolith and starch grain analysis. Radiocarbon dating the charred residue provides information on when the vessel represented by this sherd was primarily in use. Phytolith and starch grain analysis provides information on some of the foods prepared or stored within the vessel.
Three vegetation samples recovered during 2009 and 2010 field work in Peru were submitted for radiocarbon dating. The samples included two unidentified hardwood shrub twigs and a clump of grass associated with the margin of a receding glacier.
Four charcoal samples were submitted from sites 24PH2977 and 24PH2973 near Ft. Peck Lake, Montana. These sites represent Avonlea cultural material scatters. Charcoal samples were identified and processed for AMS radiocarbon analysis.
A bison pre-molar recovered from site 24CH395 near Square Butte in Chouteau County, Montana, was submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating. A single root from the pre-molar was dated, leaving the tooth enamel available for other possible analyses.
A portion of canvas containing a portrait of St. Harold was submitted for an AMS radiocarbon date. The painting is thought to have originated in either Switzerland or Italy.
A drilled rib bone was submitted for radiocarbon dating. The bone, which has been curated for many years, had several severe cracks and had been shellacked. Treatment prior to radiocarbon dating included removing the shellac, then recovering collagen.
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.
Two bone fragments recovered from 26EK9840, a site exhibiting evidence of Archaic occupation, were submitted for radiocarbon dating. These bone fragments represent Levels 20-30 cm and 40-50 cm.
A single bone fragment from Spokane Creek, Montana was submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating.
AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARCOAL AND BONE FROM THE WAHKPA CHU’GN BISON KILL SITE (24HL0101), MONTANA (2011)
Three bison bone samples and two pieces of charcoal were submitted from the Wahkpa Chu’gn bison kill site (24HL0101) in north-central Montana. One bone sample was recovered from a large fire-cracked rock feature found in Area E. Two charcoal samples and two bison bone samples were recovered from Display House #5, the westernmost display area, in Area D. The earliest occupation appears to have been the Besant Complex around 2000-1500 BP. There was a short occupation by the Avonlea Complex,...
A fabric fragment, charcoal, and wood from Nahal Amram, Israel, were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. Nahal Amram is an area of ancient copper mining, and all three samples are associated with mines.

ANALYSIS OF ORGANIC RESIDUES AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING FOR A PIPE STEM FROM THE HURDY GURDY BRIDGE SITE (CA-DNO-1028), DEL NORTE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (2012)
A stone pipe stem recovered from the Hurdy Gurdy Bridge Site (CA-DNO-1028) in Del Norte County, northwestern California, was examined for pollen, phytolith, and starch evidence of use. In addition, the organic residue signature was examined using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). An AMS radiocarbon date was obtained on organic compounds (humates) that had penetrated the ceramic matrix of the pipe.
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...
