ANALYSIS OF ORGANIC RESIDUES (FTIR), MACROFLORAL, CHARCOAL, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING FOR SAMPLES FROM TEN SITES ON FORT BLISS, NEW MEXICO
Samples were examined from ten sites (41EP0998, 41EP1023, 41EP1251,41EP2471,
41EP2705, 41EP5665, 41EP5823, 41EP5826, 41EP5831, 41EP5860) located on Fort Bliss in
El Paso County, Texas. Twenty-four samples were submitted for charcoal identification.
Charcoal from 19 of these samples were chosen for AMS radiocarbon dating. Sediment from
five areas of carbon staining at four of the sites was floated to recover charred macrofloral
remains. Four pieces of fire-cracked rock and one ceramic sherd from four of the sites were
examined for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Which
will examine these artifacts for evidence of proteins, lipids, and/or carbohydrates.
