Micro sample 338


Small numbers of maize phytoliths were identified in Core 1 at a depths above 4.75 to 4.7 m (Piperno and Jones 2003:84). They are indirectly dated by association with radiocarbon date on aggregated phytoliths (not specifically maize) collected in the core sample at a depth of 3.25-3.35 m.
