Thanks for posting. This is fascinating. This adds a new data point to my notes on the Natufian culture. Here is a section of the Natufian timeline putting your information into context.
Thanks!

10.2 kya end of Natufian culture
12-11kya first settlement of Jericho, Israel by Natufians
12.0 kya Natufian Nahal Ein Gev II site in the Jordan Valley, Israel
13.0 kya start of Younger Dryas cold period
13.0 kya expansion of Natifuan culture stretching through Levant to Euphrates in Syria
13.0 kya earliest evidence of wild rye cultivation on Euphrates at Abu Hureyra site in northern Syria
13.5 kya evidence of graneries in Dhra, Jordan near Dead Sea
14.0 kya domesticated dog remains found at Natufian site of Ain Mallaha in Israel
14.4 kya evidence of Natufian mortars for bread making in northeast Jordan ***********
14.5 kya start of Younger Dryas warm period
15.0 kya evidence of Natufian funeral rites at Haifa, Israel

PS. I think that there is a confusion in the article confusing agriculture involving collection and selection of wild grains, as by the Natufians and early Egyptians, and the later rise of domesticated grains which are identified by their much larger kernels.
