Summary

Charred botanic material and charcoal from the Albert Bell site, 14SD305, and the Wollenberg Site, 14WH319, were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. The Albert Bell site is a small Upper Republican farmstead in the valley of Museum Creek, northwest Kansas. Because the charred remains in the initial three samples submitted were not of sufficient weights for radiocarbon dating, the floated light fractions from which the botanic material was picked and several other floated light fractions were submitted for analysis. The goal of this study was to find charred annuals (corn, seeds, etc.) for AMS radiocarbon dating and did not involve a full examination of the entire light fractions. Three dates were obtained from the Albert Bell site. Three radiocarbon dates also were obtained on a charred grass stem and charcoal from the Wollenberg site, a Central Plains farmstead in northeast Kansas.
