Radiocarbon dating of smoke blackened thatch samples were submitted in 1996 as part of a plan to develop a reliable absolute dating method for soot-blackened thatch. Calibrated dates of AD 1465-1620 and AD 1450-1635 were calculated from the samples, although some earlier dates were also generated by a sample but are not thought to be reliable.
