Summary

Initial excavations at the Genevieve Lykes Duncan Site (41BS2615) on the 02 Ranch, approximately 25 miles south of Alpine in Brewster County, Texas, identified it as a buried, open campsite with three locales. Two charcoal samples, collected between and around the rocks of a buried hearth (Feature 18) and a buried thermal feature (2) at the Broadway Locale were submitted for identification. In addition, charcoal from Feature 18 was selected for AMS

radiocarbon age determination. Although this area has experienced multiple occupations including Late Paleoindian, Early Archaic, and Middle Archaic, the charcoal sample from Feature 18 is believed to represent the Late Paleoindian Period.
