PRESENTATION: "Dating in the Dark: Luminescence Ages of Intermountain Ware Pottery from Northwestern Wyoming" by Carlie Ideker
The timing and occupation of high-altitude archaeological sites in the Central Rocky Mountains isnít well understood due to limited reliable age control. However, the presence of prehistoric pottery at these sites provides an opportunity to directly date vessel manufacture with optically stimulated luminescence (OSL). Please join Carlie Ideker for a discussion about luminescence dating applications in archaeology, including her research dating Intermountain Ware pottery, its implications for high-altitude prehistoric occupations, and the effects of modern wildfires on potsherds.
Carlie Ideker was born in Dubois, Wyoming and called the state home for 22 years. Her early adventures in the outdoors led to encounters with the archaeological record. Those encounters resulted in a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Wyoming and an M.S. in Anthropology with an emphasis in Archaeology and Cultural Resource Management from Utah State University. Ms. Ideker has eight years of research, field, and teaching experience in the Rocky Mountain West with a focus on prehistoric mountain adaptations, the appearance of pottery, and luminescence dating in archaeological applications. Since 2013, Carlie has worked for the Utah State University Luminescence Laboratory in Logan, Utah.
