Numerous shell mounds are present on the Islands, dating back to about years ago. They are associated with a rapidly changing littoral environment and provide a high resolution case study of how coastal populations adjusted to dynamic coastline changes and the nature of the resulting archaeological record. The purpose of the research is to characterise the archaeological signature of an intensive marine economy, the factors that lie behind the accumulation of the shell mounds, which are today the most visible and abundant traces of prehistoric settlement on the Islands, their relationship to dynamic changes in coastal geomorphology and ecology, and the ways in which they can help to identify and intepret earlier traces of coastal archaeology in the Pleistocene, especially in the search for underwater remains associated with periods of lower sea level.

Pretreatment — It is important to understand the pretreatment applied to samples since they directly affect the final result. You are welcome to contact us to discuss the pretreatment or request that we contact you after the pretreatment and prior to dating. Pretreatment for Corals — AMS dating requires as little as 3 milligrams of coral after the pretreatment.
After WWI, the company expanded their market into North America and was one of the largest oil companies by the s. The shell logo first appeared in as the trademark for a small London shipping business. When the owner, Marcus Samuel, incorporated the Shell Transport and Trading Company inthe shell logo came along.

Arctica islandica. Credit: Karlafg via Wikimedia Commons. He was at Bangor University in Wales where there were thousands of clams, each a specimen of Arctica islandica taken from 80 meters of seawater on the North Icelandic Shelf. Wanamaker, now an associate professor of geological and atmospheric sciences at Iowa State University, started building the marine archive by processing all those clams—lab work that involved sectioning shells, embedding shell slices in epoxy blocks, measuring down to a millionth of a meter, drilling samples, radiocarbon dating, and determining oxygen isotopes.
Samples used for radiocarbon dating must be handled carefully to avoid contamination. Not all material can be dated by this method; only samples containing organic matter can be tested: the date found will be the date of death of the plants or animals from which the sample originally came. Samples for dating need to be converted into a form suitable for measuring the 14 C content; this can mean conversion to gaseous, liquid, or solid form, depending on the measurement technique to be used.
Accelerator mass spectrometry AMS dates for nine shell beads and two shell ornaments are used to test the application to Orange County of a temporal sequence developed for the Santa Barbara Channel region. Olivella biplicata barrels and caps seem not to have been occurrences of King's Late Middle or Late periods in Orange County, but rather there appears to have been a switch to Gulf of California Olivella dama shells for local barrel and cap manufacture.
