Abstract

Two wooden artifacts of considerable artistic and technological interest to Northwest Coast prehistorians have been dated using the AMS radiocarbon method. The results indicate that prehistoric Northwest Coast artists were producing wood carvings fully comparable in quality and iconographic complexity to those of the ethnographic peoples of the same region. L'utilisation de la méthode de datation au radiocarbone par accélérateur et spectromètre de masse a permis de dater deux objets en bois qui présentens un intérêt artistique et technologique considérable pour les préhistoriens de la Côte Nord-Ouest. Ces résultats montrent que les artistes préhistoriques de la Côte Nord-Ouest réalisaient des gravures sur bois tout à fait comparables à ceux des groupes ethnographiques de la même région sur les plans de la qualité et de la complexité iconographique.
