C14 Data Base - Errata

We would like to correct some errors which appeared in our catalogue of 1994 and to mention some new books and articles which the dates were taken from. At the same time we would like to apply to our Readers with a kind request of sending to us the other dates with all possible information concerning collection of the samples and their elaboration.

Lat. 08º35'S, Long 78º43'W. According to POZOR90a those two names stand for one site and should be reported as Salinas de Chao. The site occupies about 8 ha at the base and on the lower slopes of Andean foothills near the coast at the extreme southern edge of the Chao Valley. The site consists of numerous terraced platforms built against the hill slope. Additional freestanding structures occupy more level areas at the hill base. Two sunken circular plazas are presents. Numerous fragments of cotton nets and twined textiles were recovered, but no ceramics were associated with the use of this architectural complex.

Additionally we have noted that both BERGE88 and LUMBR93 appear in List of references but there is lack of dates in Reference index. It should be corrected for:

The authors regret any confusion those errors may have caused.
We also have added some new dated to our database, that caused the necessity to enlarge List of references and Reference index with new articles and books.
