IDENTIFICATION AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF A WOOD SAMPLE FROM SITE HfSf-8, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA
Site HfSf-8 occupies select beaches that are part of the draw down zone of Williston Lake Reservoir, which lies within the Rocky Mountain Trench. Although the site contains artifacts lying on fluvial silts and clays that underlie a stratified peat bog, they were deposited in this location as the result of erosion. The interface between the bog and fluvial terrace contained a stump with roots. A single wood sample from this stump was submitted for identification and AMS radiocarbon dating. It is believed that the date produced from this sample will establish a minimum age for the site, which is expected to post date the Finlay River down cutting during the mid- to late Holocene.
