Summary

A complete grayware jar with banded neck was recovered from the sidewall of a looter’s pit at 42SA14237. The jar and its undisturbed contents were mailed to PaleoResearch Institute, Inc. for study. While carefully pouring out the sand from the jar, we noted another small vessel inside the grayware banded neck vessel (Figure 1:A). We continued to pour out the sand while holding that tiny vessel in place, then retrieved it using a pair of tweezers. Beneath the tiny vessel was a mass of charred organic materials (Figure 1:B-C). Analysis of the charred mass and an AMS date on the mass were authorized to learn both the date of use and identify the food remaining in the larger vessel.
