Extended Data Fig. 7

Ages (n = 28) have been modelled in OxCal version 4.2.4. Only random errors are included in the age model. Pale probability distributions represent the unmodelled ages (likelihoods) and dark grey distributions represent the modelled ages (posterior probabilities). The narrow and wide brackets beneath the distributions represent the 68.2% and 95.4% probability ranges, respectively. Start and end ages have been modelled for each phase, with age ranges (95.4% confidence interval, random-only errors) given in years and rounded off to the closest decade.
