CERAMIC RESIDUE AND ORGANIC RESIDUE (FTIR) ANALYSES AND AMS RADIOCARBON AGE DETERMINATION OF A VESSEL FROM SITE 34MC1149, McCURTAIN COUNTY, OKLAHOMA

Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings

Year: 2019

Summary

Site 34MC1149 is located on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers fee-owned lands at Pine Creek Lake, 21 km northeast of the town of Fort Towson, Oklahoma. When the site was occupied in the Late Sanders (ca. AD 1200–1300) and McCurtain phases (ca. AD 1300–1700), it was situated on an upland landform overlooking the Little River Valley (Shannon R. Ryan, personal communication, January 21, 2019). R. Christopher Goodwin & Associates (RCG&A) submitted a nearly complete ceramic vessel (Sample 1) to PaleoResearch Institute for ceramic residue, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and radiocarbon age determination analyses. Through these analyses, RCG&A aims to:

1. Determine the presence of residue on the ceramic in extractable quantities;

2. Understand vessel use;

3. Learn about foods used in the vessel, if any, and;

4. Reveal affiliation with local cultural contexts via age determination.
