ANALYSIS OF SAMPLES FROM KHOR KHARFOT, DHOFAR, OMAN (2016)
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...

Diagnostic projectile points, including Neville-, Stark-, Brewerton-, and Small Stemmed-type, suggest occupation during the Middle and Late...
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...

Prior to construction of a new entrance road a site was detected on the western bank of Machine Branch, a small drainage that runs between the Upper and Middle Fields (Jack Gary, personal communication July 29, 2015). Three charcoal samples from two test pits were submitted for identification and subsequent AMS radiocarbon age determination.
CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM SITES 59-73 AND 59-111, NEW LONDON COUNTY, CONNECTICUT (2018)
Sites 59-111 and 59-73 are situated in Groton, New London County, Connecticut and are 17th century Native American archaeological sites. Site 59-73 is situated atop a flat hilltop east of Site 59-111, and both sites are located in wooded areas that overlook the wetlands to the east. Two charcoal samples from each site were submitted for AMS radiocarbon age determination that are believed to date to the Pequot War (1636–1637), suggesting a possibility the two sites were related to the conflict.
CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF SAMPLES FROM SPOON LAKE 3 (YAK-076) AND KNIGHT ISLAND NORTH POINT (YAK-205), YAKUTAT COUNTY, ALASKA (2016)
Sites YAK-076 (Spoon Lake 3) and YAK-205 (Knight Island North Point) lie in Yakutat Bay, southeastern Alaska. Both sites consist of house pits with hearths and associated storage caches. Recovered artifacts indicate fishing, hunting, meat and hide processing. The Spoon Lake 3 site probably was occupied as soon as AD 1275, while the settlement at the Knight Island North Point site followed shortly after glacier retreat (AD 1500) from the island (Aron Crowell, personal communication November 21,...
