Summary

Six charcoal samples from sites 45SJ61 and 45SJ69 on San Juan Island and Johns

Island in western Washington were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating.

Both sites are prehistoric shell middens with pit ovens, possibly used for roasting camas, and

are believed to represent Late Holocene occupations of the Coast Salish peoples. Charcoal

was collected from fill of the pit/oven features. A total of six AMS radiocarbon dates were
