The results were very consistent and gave an excellent match to the dendrochronological date of the trackway.
The method has wide potential for the precise dating of pottery use on sites.
The horse tooth from Fuente Nueva III, for example, was definitely not suitable for D-A dating.
The practical difficulty of this approach is whether there are actually any old samples that conform to the D-A model.
In order to better constrain the kinematic meaning of the ZF and the timing of these important events, we have used the K-Ar method to date a set of brittle-ductile and brittle fault rocks cut by the ZF and sampled from its immediate footwall.
