Summary

Charcoal from the floor of the central depression of a sotol baking pit at Site BIBE00481 in Brewster County, Texas, was collected for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. This site is a rock shelter with rock imagery panels located in a remote area within the Big Bend National Park. Analyses of the charcoal sample will be used to determine the most recent use of the cooking feature within the rockshelter. The estimated age is Middle to Late Archaic; however, sites in the vicinity have no associated dating and this sample will be the first from this site type in this part of the terrain.
