Re: Homo sapiens idaltu

"White said two of the skulls appear to have been scraped clean of flesh, 
suggesting an ancient mortuary practice, or possibly cannibalism."

Isn't it possible, or even likely, that these individuals at the time of death 
had been buried as a funerary practice resulting in unreliable dating if the 
age was based on the sedimentation they were found in?  Is carbon dating still 
possible at this age?
