The earliest possible dates for archaeological artifacts associated with modern humans, in Spain, Italy, and France are about 41,600 years ago.(Zilhao discounts recent dates from Germany of up to 43,000 years ago.) Other researchers praise the study, but are cautious about concluding that Neandertals were cave artists.

Thus co-author Joao Zilhao, an archaeologist at the University of Barcelona in Spain who has long championed Neandertals' symbolic and creative capacities, contends that there is "a strong probability of Neandertal authorship." He points out that Neandertals made jewelry and used ochre, and that the oldest known modern human fossils in Europe, from the site of Pestera cu Oase in Romania, are only about 39,000 years old.

In a few cases, the team also dated calcite underneath artworks, thus creating a "sandwich" that generated maximum and minimum dates.

Its age can be obtained from the extent to which 230Th has grown into radioactive equilibrium with its parent 234U. The technique of radiochemical analysis is given in ref. 1. The 230Th–234U method has been found to be less reliable for the dating of molluscs2; although it has also been applied to the dating of bones3, the.… continue reading »

Abstract. Paleolithic cave art is an exceptional archive of early human symbolic behavior, but because obtaining reliable dates has been difficult, its chronology is still poorly understood after more than a century of study. We present uranium-series disequilibrium dates of calcite deposits overlying or underlying art found in.… continue reading »

Aug 23, 2016. Uranium-thorium dating, also called thorium-230 dating, uranium-series disequilibrium dating or uranium-series dating, is a radiometric dating technique commonly used to determine the age of calcium carbonate materials such as speleothem or coral. Unlike other commonly used radiometric dating.… continue reading »

Archaeological Applications. Principles of the Method. Measurement. Limitations, sources of Error and Accuracy. Uranium-Series dating is a radiometric dating method based on the decay of various uranium isotopes, which decay through a series of stages to a stable lead isotope. It is widely applied in archaeology to date.… continue reading »
