No, but my grandfather ‘tanned my hide’ once!...........................
I searched a bit and don’t see a lot of slamming.
I don’t doubt the tools - but the aging method/accuracy.
I note that at that site they commonly find “first ever” and “earliest” - so - two possibilities - they either are a lot of first evers and earliest - OR - dating is messed up, and “laters” are being dated as earlier.
I don’t see anyone agressively saying they have screwed up the site - so probably OK.
Simialrly - these discoveries in or near Israel of “ealiest man” - always need a tight loook. That said - if I were coming out of Africa - I’d build my summer hous ein Israel as well. So - it is n’t crazy - like say - Mongolia. (Or - to tie all the theads together - American Indians as a lost tribe of Israel.)
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
They were Palestinians, of course.
These are flint, not bronze and iron.
