Summary

Single charcoal samples from sites 45LE511 and 45LE803 in Lewis County, Washington, were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. These sites are believed to represent multi-component camps with lithic artifacts reflecting stone tool production and/or maintenance. Site 45LE511 is believed to represent Seal Island/Ilwaco I phase occupations from 4000 BC to AD 200. Projectile points from 45LE803 suggest Ilwaco I (Columbia Estruary) occupations from AD 0 to AD 1050. Identification of charcoal will provide information concerning wood types burned as fuel at these sites, while radiocarbon dating will provide temporal information.
