The AMS dates and A/I ratios for Casuarius eggshell from 65-70 cm and 130-135 cm represent paired determinations on single eggshell fragments.
With the exception of the two charcoal dates from 110-115 cm and 165-170 cm, the results are stratigraphically consistent and the two new Casuarius eggshell dates support the earlier interpretation of the timing and mode of accumulation of this deposit.
As before, paired AMS dates and A/I ratios for single Casuarius eggshell fragments are indicated.
