PPND - the Platform for Neolithic Radiocarbon Dates


32°55'18'' N    35°13'0'' E

The deviations of the radiocarbon dates of Hayonim Cave are for the most part very large. The dates themselves – OxA 743: 12150-11730; OxA: 12750-12100 BC – fall long before the onset of the Younger Dryas in the early Natufian.
