Summary

Three charcoal samples from the Birthday Site (41BS1914) in west Texas were submitted

for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This site is a buried prehistoric campsite with

numerous stone-lined hearths eroding from arroyo walls. Charcoal was submitted from the fill of

a stone-lined hearth, from a cultural lens adjacent to a buried hearth, and from a cultural lens

noted in arroyo walls. These features are believed to represent Early to Middle Archaic

occupations. A total of three AMS radiocarbon dates were obtained.
