POLLEN AND MACROFLORAL ANALYSIS, AND AMS RADIOCARBON DATING OF SAMPLES FROM SITE AR0308030704, LINCOLN NATIONAL FOREST, NEW MEXICO.
A soil sample from the roasting pit was submitted for pollen and macrofloral analysis along with two charcoal samples for identification.
Potentially AMS radiocarbon datable materials were separated and one sample was selected for dating.
Wood remains, either in the form of charcoal or as wood from waterlogged features, are often preserved in archaeological deposits.
Wood remains may also be preserved through mineral replacement.
Ironside theorized that after the whale became too degraded for display purposes, portions were disposed of in the lake. A year later when Seymour published his findings, Ironside’s theory explaining the vertebra’s origin had become firmly entrenched in the city’s psyche.
