Abstract

Dates obtained from the collagen of 5 mammals from the fossil deposits of Samwel Cave, Shasta County, California,
USA, show emplacement during the last glacial maximum. These dates support the assignment of the fauna to the late
Pleistocene. The Samwel Cave deposits currently do not appear to be stratified.
