Record #186225:

A non-finite radiocarbon date on charcoal at the "Dorset" Palaeo-Eskimo site of Cape Ray Light (CjBt-1), Newfoundland, Canada, with remarks on acceptable ages, material sources, and environment / Ian A. Brookes.

Title: A non-finite radiocarbon date on charcoal at the "Dorset" Palaeo-Eskimo site of Cape Ray Light (CjBt-1), Newfoundland, Canada, with remarks on acceptable ages, material sources, and environment / Ian A. Brookes.
Author(s): Brookes, Ian A.
Date: 2008.
In: Canadian Journal of Archaeology. (2008.), Vol. 38(2) (2008)
Abstract: Presents non-finite radiocarbon age for charcoal at site of Cape Ray Light, south-western Newfoundland. Notes that firewood for wood charcoal samples was probably collected from driftwood along nearby shore, as collection of growing wood would have been difficult and unlikely. Finite ages on charcoal refer to age of wood when it ceased growth, rather than at time of human occupation at site, though some driftwood might not have been dead for long.
