Summary

Twelve charcoal samples from Site CA-MRN-67 were submitted for identification. This site is a prehistoric shell midden on the eastern shore of the Marin Peninsula in what is now Larkspur, Marin County, California. It is believed to have been inhabited during the Early Period into the Terminal Middle Period (3980-960 BP), possibly representing an ancestral Coast Miwok population. Charcoal and other charred botanic remains were identified to provide information about types of wood burned as fuel and other plant resources utilized by the prehistoric occupants of this site.
