Interesting.   It would be awesome to discover something like that.  

Was this a student who wrote the article?  

I noticed that she stated that the carbon dating would be able to accurately 
identify the age of the artifacts to within 50 years.  

Carbon dating, which is a test of the break down of the carbon 14 atom, is 
only accurate for up to 2000 years.  Anything older than that has to rely on 
other methods of dating.

Thanks for the cool site,
