Freya, without knowing the specifics of the method used to date this particular site, I totally agree that such dating based on prior presumptive context is too often problematic. The obvious culprit is the uncertainty introduced by one or more subsequent cultures that may have moved into a previous culture's infrastructure and made it their own after clearing out the artifacts left by that previous culture. The Crusaders endeavored to remove all evidence of pagan cultures. The Romans apparently attempted to clear out the evidence of a prior culture at Baalbek and perhaps at the "forts" at Mons Claudianus and other sites in the eastern mountain desert of Egypt. When we moved into Manhattan, we removed the presence of the indian culture. It's a recurring phenomenon throughout history.
