Excerpt- In 1932 Dellinger’s crews excavated the Edens Bluff Shelter in Benton County, Arkansas, along the White River. Among the other interesting artifacts found at the site was a bag of seeds. This woven bag contains about a liter of seeds from a starchy-oily seed plant called chenopodium. This was a plant first collected by Native American hunters and gathers and later domesticated in North America and Mexico. It is related to the grain quinoa which has recently become popular again. A radiocarbon date of approximately AD 20 was obtained on a sample of seeds from this bag.
