AMS RADIOCARBON DATES FOR NEW CAVES PUEBLO AND BENCH PUEBLO, ARIZONA
Four samples of Zea mays cupules were submitted from hearth contexts at New Caves
Pueblo (NA486) and Bench Pueblo (NA16) for AMS radiocarbon dating. New Caves Pueblo
and Bench Pueblo are located on O’Neill Crater, a cinder cone near Flagstaff, Arizona.
Samples were submitted to determine if the sites were occupied contemporaneously. The
samples submitted for AMS dating all came from macrofloral flotation samples and consisted of
Zea mays cupule fragments. Zea mays was chosen for dating because it represents both an
annual species and a cultivar.
