The site of Ramat Harif is, apart from Maaleh Ramoon, one of the rare radiocarbon-dated settlements of the Harifian, and the dates accord well with the stratigraphy. The sum of the dates for the older Layer 3 ranges between 10650 BC and 10100 BC, right in the middle of the Younger Dryas. The dates of the younger Layer 7 are between 10200 BC and 9450 BC, just reaching into the Holocene. This younger phase would correspond to the Khiamian of Mureybet.
