Chronometric Precision and Accuracy: Radiocarbon and Luminescence Age
Estimates for Pacific Northwest Cooking Features

Left: Map of study area and the location of the three sample sites. Right: Scatterplot with linear regression of luminescence and radiocarbon ages. Linear regressions were fitted to intercept at 0,0 assuming that if there is congruence between the dating techniques that they should have the same zero point. Vertical error bars indicate the two-sigma error for radiocarbon dates, and the horizontal error bars indicate the one-sigma error for luminescence ages. Line models and R2 values are provided in the chart area for comparisons of calcined bone/luminescence and charcoal/luminescence. Brown et al., Canadian Journal of Archaeology 42(2):243, 247.

The Pierce-Embree Site: A Palaeoindian Findspot from Southwestern Nova Scotia

Left: Photo of the findspot, facing east. The archaeologist is standing at the approximate location where the point was recovered. Thus, the point was found at the edge of the extreme high-tide mark, and is only inundated for a few hours a day. The erosion of the site was likely caused by storm surges and associated wave action over a long duration. Right: Photo of the obverse face of the Pierce-Embree Point. Betts et al., Canadian Journal of Archaeology 42(2):256, 257.

President’s Message Winter 2019

The six months since my last message have been eventful, and at times challenging. The 52nd annual CAA conference, which will be co-hosted by the Association des Archéologues du Québec (AAQ), in Quebec City, is coming together and promises to be a unique experience. The theme “Heritage at Risk” recognizes “the myriad challenges confronting the preservation and accessibility of the archaeological record, archaeological sites, monuments, landscapes, collections and intangible cultural heritage” (from conference webpage). The CAA organizing committee is co-chaired by James Woollett and Michel Plourde. The CAA Board of Directors has also hired a student intern, Laurence Ferland, to assist with the organization. The Student Committee is organizing an Ethics Bowl, which will be a first for the CAA.
