Information

Desiccated Zea mays cobs were dated. The stratigraphic position and provenience are unknown. The corn cobs were described by V. H. Jones: "8-, 10-, and 12-row ears, mostly short and thick. Most show elliptical cross section, a characteristic of Basketmaker corn of the Southwest. Some influence of Eastern Complex corn is also evident" (Crane and Griffin 1964:8).

This date has been reported in the Canadian Archaeological Radiocarbon Database (CARD) (Morlan and Betts 1999).
