PPND - the Platform for Neolithic Radiocarbon Dates

The Neolithic site of Khirbet Hammam has been dated by four radiocarbon dates. The two dates of the East Field do not overlap in the 1-σ range after calibration and thus might either reflect one long continuous or two separate occupations of the site: Beta 221348: 7570-7485 BC; Beta 221347: 7470-7330 BC.

GX 26147 (7520 BC – 7370BC) of the southern excavation unit covers both ranges. Additionally, GX 26146 (7190 BC – 7040 BC) might point to a more recent (re-) occupation of the site. A comment on these dates has to await the publication of the stratigraphy of the site (Peterson 2007).
