Dr. Andy Hemmings on the success of the 2014 spring excavation :


“Obviously we are just beginning to digest all of the material and information collected, but demonstrating an intact sequence of Holocene AND Pleistocene sediments (to at least 22,000 years ago) with thinly scattered cultural remains in them - from about 11,000 years ago, and well below that on what  appears to be a human living surface from circa 12,000 years ago or older are HUGE finds for us.....and of course leave much more to do.....”
