1-18 (18 Records)
Monte Verde I, located in south-central Chile, has produced radiocarbon dates indicating pre-Clovis occupation. Dates concurrent with occupational surface artifacts and features at MVII, including lithic, non-lithic artifacts, architectural remains, and spatial patterning, indicate site occupation approximately 14,600 to 14,200 years Cal BP (Dillehay, et al. 2008:784). Excavations at MV-I have produced dates ranging from 16,000 ± 60 to 9320 ± 40 BP. Noncultural levels have been dated between...

The Soyo 1 Site in Soyo is situated in the Darkhad Depression in Khövsgöl province, north-central Mongolia. One mammalian bone fragment from Soyo 1 (Table 1) was submitted for bone collagen extraction and AMS radiocarbon age determination to contribute to transitional chronologies between Mongolian Epi-Paleolithic (Neolithic) hunting-gathering and Bronze Age pastoralism.

CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION, BONE COLLAGEN EXTRACTION, ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM THE T. THOMPSON SITE (21CO50), COTTONWOOD COUNTY, MINNESOTA (2017)
The T. Thompson site (21CO50), located in Cottonwood County, in southwestern Minnesota, yielded three samples for AMS radiocarbon analysis (Table 1). A ceramic sherd containing visible charred food crust, a bison ulna, and a piece of Ulmus rubra (slippery elm) charcoal were submitted for AMS radiocarbon analysis. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic (FTIR) analysis also was performed on the charred food crust removed from the ceramic sherd to obtain a signature of the foods cooked.
MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS, BONE COLLAGEN EXTRACTION, AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM THE CUC FUEL PIPELINE PROJECT, PUERTO RICO, SAIPAN (2017)
The CUC Fuel Pipeline Project, located in Puerto Rico, Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands, revealed several prehistoric features and burials. Seven bulk soil samples collected from various features were submitted for macrofloral analysis to recover and identify charred botanic remains suitable for radiocarbon analysis. Additionally, bone collagen extraction and radiocarbon date was requested on human rib fragments collected from a single prehistoric burial. Seven charred botanic samples and...
MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS, CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION, BONE COLLAGEN EXTRACTION, AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM THE FORT LOOKOUT II SITE (39LM0057), LYMAN COUNTY, SOUTH DAKOTA (2015)
The Fort Lookout II site (39LM57) is a multicomponent site located on an MT-1 terrace along the eroding west bank of the Missouri River (Lake Francis Case) at the southern end of the Fort Hale bottoms, Lyman County, South Dakota. Archaeological investigations at the site include excavations in 1950, 1951, 1986, 1999, and 2001. The site demonstrates village occupation during the Initial Middle Missouri as well as subsequent historic components (Katherine Lamie, personal communication March 2,...
MACROFLORAL, PROTEIN RESIDUE (CIEP), AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM SITE 24DW0560, DAWSON COUNTY MONTANA (2019)
Site 24DW0560 is a buried lithic scatter or temporary camp located in Dawson County, Montana, approximately 10.5 km west of the town of Lindsay. Twenty-one samples were submitted for a variety of analyses to better understand resource use among prehistoric huntergatherer populations. Eight lithic samples were submitted for protein analysis. Of the seven rock and sediment samples collected from fire-cracked rock (FCR) features, three were submitted for FTIR analysis, one for macrofloral, one for...
ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS, BONE COLLAGEN EXTRACTION, AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION ON SAMPLES FROM SITES 21HE99, 21FE76, 21BL26, AND 21ML12, MINNESOTA (2019)
In Minnesota, understanding ceramic periods of prehistory and their attendant subsistence practices is of critical importance. Our previous study (Scott Cummings 2017) indicates that problems with radiocarbon dates on ceramics are not unique to this period. Instead, the entire prehistoric record is affected. The natural Minnesota landscape contributes dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and organic carbon (DOC), confounding efforts to create a clean radiocarbon record. When graphing all dates from...
PHYTOLITH, STARCH, ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARRED RESIDUE FROM A CERAMIC SHERD, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF BONE FROM THE NE’HU-LAT-POE VILLAGE, SITE 10IH3337, IDAHO (2010)
A ceramic rim sherd and two bone fragments from the Ne’hu-lat-poe Village, site 10IH3337, in the Nez Perce National Forest in Idaho County, Idaho, were submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating. This multicomponent site is one of five ancient Nez Perce villages found in the area. Phytolith, starch, and organic residue analyses also were performed on the ceramic rim sherd. The sherd was tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Phytolith, starch, and organic...
POLLEN AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF SEDIMENT ASSOCIATED WITH A BURIAL AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF HUMAN BONE FROM SITES 41HY161 AND 41HY163, SAN MARCOS, TEXAS (2009)
Previous pollen analysis of a sample associated with a burial from site 41HY163 in south-central Texas yielded possible evidence of Zea mays pollen. Because the identification was tentative, an additional soil sample was submitted to PaleoResearch Institute for testing. Pollen and phytolith analyses were conducted for the specific purpose of finding any evidence for the presence of Zea mays or to find pollen types that might be confused with Zea mays. After completion of the pollen and phytolith...
