Nonetheless, another investigation distributed in the diary Scientific Reports that rethought the remaining parts utilizing the most recent logical techniques recommends that the gathering were not murdered in an oddball slaughter as recently suspected. Almost certain they were executed during inconsistent and intermittent savagery that occurred more than quite a while and was most likely set off by major climatic and ecological changes during the period.

They were additionally ready to precisely date the skeletons to in any event 13,400 years of age through radiocarbon dating, making it the soonest known graveyard and illustration of relational brutality on the planet.
