Here's a pic of the unit I worked in. You can see it has good dark charcoal-flecked midden soil. One of the joys of digging in rockshelters is that you get ot deal with lots of rocks as you can see here.
I am convinced we will find some earlier datable occupations here. One of the units directly in front of the shelter (right side of the second picture) was returning lots of good undisturbed material, including datable charcoal, at a depth of about 2m. We'll see how those dates turn out.
