Summary

Sites CR1, CR2, and CR3 comprise Holocene terraces located immediately below the Grand Coulee Dam along the Columbia River, Ferry County, Washington. Two bulk soil samples from each site were submitted for macrofloral analysis. Botanic components and detrital charcoal were identified, and potentially radiocarbon datable material was separated. Additionally, three samples underwent microscopic charcoal recovery due to insufficient macroscopic charcoal. Two microscopic charcoal samples were submitted for AMS radiocarbon age determination.
