Summary

A soapstone vessel recovered in a Santa Ynez Valley as part of a burial (13) of a woman aged 35–50. Radiocarbon dates of 802 ± 24 and 929 ± 23 RCYBP on shell recovered from a nearby burial have been reservoir corrected to 1659–1875 and 1507–1679 A.D., respectively. Charred food residue recovered from the interior of the soapstone vessel was studied to determine its contents. This vessel was recovered from Los Padres National Forest and curated at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum. Samples scraped from the soapstone vessel interior by Kaitlin Brown were submitted to PaleoResearch Institute for analysis.
