We currently are investigating the possible cultural affiliation of these remains.
We now have sufficient information to determine that these skeletal remains should be considered "Native American" as defined by NAGPRA.
In this inaugural year excellent applications were received from Ph D students undertaking fieldwork in Belize, Peru, Chile and Brazil.
The winner of the 2015-6 round, Bruna Rocha, is currently working on her dissertation on the Archaeology of the Tapajós River, Brazilian Amazonia.
In dead material, the decayed 14C is not replaced and its concentration in the object decreases slowly.The results of recent radiocarbon dating of small samples of bone extracted from the remains were given significant weight in making this determination.This interpretation is supported by other analyses and information regarding the skeletal remains themselves, sedimentary analysis, lithic analysis, an earlier radiocarbon date on a bone recovered with the other remains, and geomorphologic analysis (summarized in Mc Manamon 1999).MCI does not make any warranty, expressed or implied; does not assume any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information or process disclosed; nor represents that its use would not infringe privately owned rights.If any organizations or other pertinent information has been inadvertently excluded please contact MCI.
