PHYTOLITH, STARCH, ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF CHARRED RESIDUE FROM A CERAMIC SHERD, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF BONE FROM THE NE’HU-LAT-POE VILLAGE, SITE 10IH3337, IDAHO

Summary

A ceramic rim sherd and two bone fragments from the Ne’hu-lat-poe Village, site 10IH3337, in the Nez Perce National Forest in Idaho County, Idaho, were submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating. This multicomponent site is one of five ancient Nez Perce villages found in the area. Phytolith, starch, and organic residue analyses also were performed on the ceramic rim sherd. The sherd was tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Phytolith, starch, and organic residue analyses will be used to determine the foods contained and/or cooked in the vessel represented by the rim sherd.
