PROTEIN AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF SAMPLES FROM SITES EgPr 7, EgPr 8, EgPs 65, EgPs 66, EgPs 67, EgPs 68, EgPs 70, EgPs 87, EhPq 3, EhPr 4, EhPr 24, AND EhPr 25, ALBERTA, CANADA

Summary

Lithics, fire-broken rock, and bone from sites EgPr 7, EgPr 8, EgPs 65, EgPs 66, EgPs 67, EgPs 68, EgPs 70, EgPs 87, EhPq 3, EhPr 4, EhPr 24, and EhPr 25 in Alberta, Canada, were submitted for protein and organic residue analysis, and AMS radiocarbon dating. These sites vary in cultural affiliation and occupation periods. AMS radiocarbon dating helps place the sites in an absolute chronological time frame, while protein and organic residue analysis provide information on the types of plants and animals processed at that time. Samples were tested for organic residues using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
