Summary

A figurine collected from an undisclosed location along the Myakka River, southwest

Florida, and a leather fragment sheath and wood fragment from an estuary also in southwest Florida were submitted for analyses. Analytical techniques utilized to determine the figurine’s composition include pXRF, FTIR, and observation. A photographic record of the figurine documents our observations on its physical characteristics. Although a radiocarbon date was requested for the figurine, it is not carbon-based, so no date can be obtained. The leather and wood fragments were submitted for identification of the wood and, subsequently, radiocarbon dating of both.
