The archaeologists dated sediments at the cave site using a technique called optically enthused luminesce, which events the last time sand grains were uncovered to sunlight.
Dr Pope said the results showed that part of the succession of sediments dates between 100,000 and 47,000 years old, representing that Neanderthal teeth which were exposed at the site in 1910 were younger than earlier thought, and "doubtless belonged to one of the last Neanderthals to live in the region".

I don't know much about optically enthused luminesce. Is it the most accurate dating system these days? How does it work?
