Geologic dating of selected archaeological sites in the Rocky Mountain region


Geologic dating of selected archaeological sites in the Rocky Mountain region



The Mountain Geologist 2(1): 35-41



Changes in the tools of early man in the Rocky Mountain region help provide a stratigraphic record that distinguishes between early, middle, and late Recent deposits and late Pleistocene sediments. Of the 43 selected sites studied, 13 were determined to be of late Pleistocene age (pre-10,000+ or -y.o.), 12 of early Recent (10,000+ or - to 4,964+ or -y.o.), 7 of middle Recent (4,964+ or - to 1,964+ or - y.o.), 8 of late Recent (1,964+ or -y.o. to present), and three sites of questionable or undeterminable age. Pleistocene and Recent mammal bones are very useful in determining the age of these sites.
