Among numerous stream-valley terrace deposits of the Gulf and Atlantic coastal plains that occupy chronologically and spatially intermediate positions between the youngest coastwise (coast-parallel) Pleistocene surface and the present, active floodplain, those of the Tunica Hills seem to provide by far the best opportunity for radiometric dating. Earlier views on the age of the Little Bayou Sara creek alluvium, represented by a single, 8 to 10-m-thick unit, ranged between the last interglaciation and middle Holocene. Reexamination of these deposits in the Little Bayou Sara and adjacent valleys clearly suggests their Late Pleistocene (apparently Farmdalian Interstade) age. The majority of the 14 available dates from the Little Bayou Sara and Tunica Bayou valleys proved to be too young, due to postdepositinal contamination. Dates ranging between 33,720 and 25,965 yr B.P. came from samples thought to be uncontaminated. Plant and faunal elements with boreal affinities in the unique fossil assemblage appear to be relicts of a preceding, full-glacial period, as regarded by Brown (1938). The absence of colder climate taxa from the Wilcox Bluff flora on Bayou Sara is insufficient evidence for a suggested Sangamon Interglacial age of the flora, and the terrace stratigraphy holds no proof for that view either. Only a single, loess-mantled, constructional, Quaternary, valley-terrace surface is present in the area. A narrow, low, actively developing floodplain terrace along Little Bayou Sara, cut into the Pleistocene alluvial unit, is primarily erosional in origin and has no bearing on the age of that unit. The age of the Tunica Hills terrace unit may provide comparison for dating intermediate valley-terrace deposits in favorable coastal settings elsewhere.
