Summary

Five charcoal samples from three units at site 36Br259 were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This buried site is located on the north side of the Susquehanna River floodplain in northeast Pennsylvania and was excavated as part of the MARC I River Crossing Project and is believed to date from the Middle to Late Woodland period. A burn feature (Feature 10B) was noted at this site, although a cultural status for the feature has not yet been determined. No other cultural features have been recovered. A total of four radiocarbon dates were obtained.
