Fascinating find but I'm not too sure about the reliability of the information in the article.

"That was something like about 16,000 years ago, which was when human beings on the site were changing from Neanderthals to present-day humans."

You got that right! They're from the Upper Palaeolithic In the early part there where still Neanderthals loitering about upto about 35000 years ago but in the Late Upper Palaeolithic you are dealing with only Homo Sapiens.
