Summary

Charcoal recovered from an eroding hearth at Lead Caribou Ridge, site GUL-370, was

submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This site is located in the southern

portion of the Tangle Lakes Archaeological District of south-central Alaska. A Northern Archaic

projectile point base was found five meters away from the hearth, suggesting an occupation

around 5,000 to 3,500 BP. Charcoal from the hearth will be identified to determine types of

wood burned as fuel by the prehistoric site occupants, then AMS radiocarbon dated to verify

time of site occupation.
