Geography comments: "in the eastern foothills of the eponymous mountain range in Qingdao City"
seven AMS dates are "close to the determinative limits of the radiocarbon method" and are therefore discounted in favour of three OSL dates, of which one date of 65.7 +/- 5.8 ka is from Unit 3
Climate and habitat
Lithology: peat
Taphonomic context: human accumulation
Habitat comments: "Unit 1 is a yellowish clay with granite breccia, 02.0m; Unit 2 consists of yellowish sand with undulating bedding containing a small number of bones and artifacts, 2.03.0m; Unit 3 is a peat deposit including abundant wood fragments, stone tools and faunal remains, 3.04.5m" and most of the material is from Unit 3
"most of the faunal remains could represent prey animals that were consumed by humans"
