The ages of the deposits were determined using both electron spin resonance, which measures how many electrons have accumulated in certain materials since burial, and magnetostratigraphy, which dates layers of rock to known periods of flip-flop in Earth’s polarity.
The dates obtained also agree with timeframes for animals identified from the bones unearthed during the excavations.
In the older deposit, the team found 17 artifacts, including cores and flakes, thin pieces of stone broken off to create sharp edges on the core tools.
