Extended Data Table 1 Compilation of modelled start and end ages for Main Chamber, East Chamber and South Chamber

From: Timing of archaic hominin occupation of Denisova Cave in southern Siberia

  1. Modelled mean ages obtained from the Bayesian model results presented in Extended Data Figs. 68 and their estimated uncertainties (±2σ) are presented for each layer (or combination of layers) together with their archaeological associations, which have been colour-coded to differentiate the four main artefact phases (early Middle Palaeolithic, dark green; middle Middle Palaeolithic, pale green; Initial Upper Palaeolithic, dark orange; and Upper Palaeolithic, pale orange). Modelled time intervals, representing potential gaps in the stratigraphic sequences, are shaded grey, with their estimated durations (±2σ) given in thousands of years.
