We have new radiocarbon dates from Halo Shelter!
Shumla's Science Director, Dr. Karen Steelman, will be sharing new data from The Hearthstone Project. Last year, the team conducted fieldwork to determine paint layer stratigraphy for Halo Shelter. Using microscopy, we can chart out the order that the paint was applied to the rock shelter wall. Based on that information, Steelman returned to conduct radiocarbon dating of the pictographs. Results from thirteen pictographs at the site are remarkably consistent, further confirming that the mural was a planned composition. We want to share these new and exciting results with you!
