Abstract


Several samples of carbonized Wood were collected from a pyroclastic flow deposit on the Mexican side of the Tacaná Volcano (located in the border between México and Guatemala). We give a brief description of the site where the charcoal was found, and the results of the C-14 analysis which yield an age for the samples of more than 42 000 years.
