Summary

A selection of bulk soil samples collected from trenches and augers excavated as part of the Rovner Simi Project, Simi Valley, southern California, were floated to recover organic fragments suitable for radiocarbon age determination. In addition, two charcoal samples also were submitted for identification and microscopic charcoal was extracted from five sediment samples. Botanic components and charcoal fragments were identified, and optimal radiocarbon datable material, including microcharcoal, was submitted for AMS radiocarbon dating.
