AMS RADIOCARBON DATE RESULTS ON BISON BONE FROM AYER POND, ORCAS ISLAND, WASHINGTON (2012)

DOCUMENT Linda Scott Cummings. Jennifer L.B. Milligan.

Two Bison antiquus bones, one small (female) and one large (male) metacarpal, from Deer Harbor, Orcas Island, Washington were submitted for radiocarbon dating. Both of these bones were permineralized and did not retain sufficient collagen for recovery and AMS radiocarbon dating. Therefore, a calf skull fragment (OP2B) recovered from a peat deposit at Ayer Pond was submitted (Table 1).
