Summary

Charred "twiggy material" overlying a house floor at site 26CK6444 in the lower Moapa

Valley, Nevada, was submitted for identification. The structure had burned, and radiocarbon

analysis of charcoal from a burned post base identified as Populus spp. yielded a radiocarbon age

of A.D. 125-338. The charcoal fragments submitted for identification were part of a larger sample

of charred twigs roughly aligned in a patch and flaring out toward the exterior edge of the house

floor. It is possible that they represent part of the structure's wall.
