The deeper into the stalagmite the researchers sampled, the older the dates turned out to be; stone just 2 centimetres from the bone was 11,300 years old.Calcite closer to the bone gave conflicting results, Stinnesbeck says.We don't want to spoil the whole game by releasing more playable areas, but we added more "after date" cut-scenes.
“They’ve done a really nice job determining the age of this thing,” says David Meltzer, an archaeologist at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
We didn't want the mini-games to take away from the story telling so we are moving more towards a simple, yet engaging, matching card game.
We may have it ready for the next demo but it isn't on our list of concerns.
Scientists have now put the age of the skeleton at more than 13,000 years old after analysing a shard of hip bone — left behind by the thieves because it was embedded in a stalagmite.
Cave divers discovered the remains in February 2012 in a submerged cave called Chan Hol near Tulúm on Mexico's Yucatán peninsula, and posted photos of a nearly complete skull and other whole bones to social media.
