CHARCOAL IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION FOR A SAMPLE FROM CHIQUIHUITE CAVE, ZACATECAS, MEXICO (2016)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Peter Kováčik. Linda Scott Cummings.

Chiquihuite Cave, located in the high altitude desert (2740 m asl) in the State of Zacatecas, north-central Mexico, is an active cave with deep deposits. A small sediment sample mixed with visible charcoal flakes was submitted for charcoal identification and AMS radiocarbon age determination of the deepest cave deposits at a depth of 3.4 meters.

EXAMINATION OF ORGANIC MATERIAL FROM MULTIPLE BLACK MAT DEPOSITS IN THE UPPER LAS VEGAS WASH, NEVADA (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

A total of seven bulk samples of organic material from black mat deposits in the Upper Las Vegas Wash, Nevada, were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon analysis. The black mat deposits are associated with late Pleistocene paleo-spring sediments. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. A single charcoal sample also was submitted for identification.


Human ecodynamics of late Neanderthal survival and anatomically modern human expansion at the Middle-Upper Paleolithic Transition, Lapa do Picareiro, Portugal
PROJECT Uploaded by: Jonathan Haws

With support from the National Science Foundation, Dr. Jonathan Haws (University of Louisville) and Dr. Michael Benedetti (University of North Carolina Wilmington) are leading a multi-year study of Neanderthal extinction and replacement by anatomically modern humans in central Portugal. The project brings together an international team to recover high-resolution archaeological, geological and paleoecological records from the excavation of Lapa do Picareiro, a cave in central Portugal. Our...


IDENTIFICATION OF CHARCOAL FROM SANTA ROSA ISLAND, CALIFORNIA (2011)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Kathryn Puseman.

Five samples from geologic “fire areas” on Santa Rosa Island, California, were submitted for identification. These “fire areas” represent distinct burn features located about 10-15 meters apart from one another and date to the Early Holocene or Terminal Pleistocene. Charcoal samples were identified to determine the types of trees burned at the site.


James Schoenwetter Pollen Research Papers
PROJECT Uploaded by: Mary Whelan

James Schoenwetter (Ph.D. Southern Illinois 1967) was a Professor Emeritus at Arizona State University. His research interests included prehistoric cultural ecology, applications of pollen analysis in archaeology and research methodology. Before his retirement in 2000 he directed the ASU Anthropology Department’s palynology lab. Pollen research by Schoenwetter and his students involved a variety of sites in Mesoamerica, North America and Europe. He directed archaeological and botanical...

POLLEN ANALYSIS FOR A SEDIMENT SAMPLE FROM THE PRUITT SHELTER NO.1, 3NW1308, NEWTON COUNTY, ARKANSAS (2018)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Linda Scott Cummings.

Pruitt Shelter No. 1 (3NW1308) is situated along a steep bluff face of the Buffalo River, Newton County, Arkansas. Site 3NW1308 is estimated to have been occupied during the Late Pleistocene or Early Holocene, as well as during the Early Archaic through the Late Mississippian, the latter represented by lithics recovered from the site. A midden that appears to have been deposited between approximately AD 600 and 1600 was sampled for pollen analysis.

PROTEIN RESIDUE, POLLEN, STARCH, AND PHYTOLITH ANALYSIS OF STONE SAMPLES FROM CAVES 2 AND 5, PAISLEY 5 MILE POINT CAVES, SITE 35LK3400, OREGON (2010)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Chad Yost. Linda Scott Cummings.

A hand stone and 4 slab fragments cut from a large boulder were submitted for protein residue analysis from the Paisley 5 Mile Point Caves, Oregon. Previous work by other researchers has identified the presence of a variety of mammal and fish protein residue and DNA at the Paisley Caves. Because of the age of this site, the suite of protein residue antisera used to test these artifacts included elephant, camel, and horse, representing Late-Pleistocene fauna now extinct in North America. In...


Recent Analyses of the Faunal Assemblage from the Submerged Cave Site of Hoyo Negro: Implications for Late Pleistocene Human Ecology Research on the Yucatan Peninsula (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Dominique Rissolo. James C. Chatters. Joaquin Arroyo-Cabrales. Alberto E Nava Blank. Blaine Schubert. H. Gregory McDonald. Pilar Luna Erreguerena.

In addition to a nearly complete human skeleton dating to the Late Pleistocene, the submerged cave site of Hoyo Negro contains a diverse and well preserved assemblage of extinct and extant fauna from the Yucatan Peninsula. Recent and on-going investigations have focused on the documentation, sampling, and partial recovery of select specimens for description and analysis. Of particular interest are bears of the genus Tremarctos, a yet unnamed megalonychid ground sloth, cougars (Puma concolor),...
