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.

The Canadian Journal of Archaeology (CJA) is the biannual publication of the Canadian Archaeological Association. The CJA publishes original scholarly work on topics pertinent to the field of Canadian archaeology, or of more general theoretical or methodological application. An Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) assists the Editor with setting the direction of the journal, and with encouraging submissions. Submissions to the CJA are accepted in both English and French.

Several different types of works are published on a regular basis:

  • Articles are major research papers on topics of broad interest to archaeologists working within, or interested in, Canadian archaeology, and to informed members of the public.
  • Research Reports are shorter in length, more focused in subject, and generally of interest to a more select audience.
  • Commentary/Discussion papers provide dissenting or alternative points of view on recently published articles or research reports, or present new information pertinent to the topic.
  • Forum consists of position papers on current topics relevant to Canadian archaeology. Each paper is sent by the Editor to a number of individuals for their comments. The position paper and commentaries will subsequently be published together.
  • Book Reviews are generally solicited by the Book Review Editor, who is responsible for identifying new or recent publications on topics appropriate for review in the CJA.

Special Sections and Thematic Issues
Collections of papers on a central theme will be considered for publication as Special Sections in regular issues of the CJA, or as thematic issues of the CJA. The theme must be on a theoretical, methodological, culture historical, or other topic of broad interest to the CAA membership. See Guidelines for Authors for more information
