Summary

Two groups of charcoal/botanic samples from the Early Horizon site of Caylán (PV31-30), on the north-central coast of Peru, were submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. Previous radiocarbon dates obtained from this site yielded two-sigma calibrated ages ranging between 800 BC and AD 20, reflecting occupation during the Early Horizon period. The first submission consisted of ten samples. Radiocarbon dates in Submission 1 were obtained from two charred maize cob fragments, two uncharred maize cob fragments, a charred cotton seed, and five pieces of charcoal that were identified to taxon. The second submission contains 17 samples. Dates were obtained from three charred maize stem fragments, a partially charred Zea mays stem fragment, an uncharred Zea mays stem fragment, three charred maize cob fragments, an uncharred maize cob fragment, and eight charcoal fragments.
