i've difficulty following your reasoning here...the carbon dating
indicates that the mortar was laid no earlier than 3809 BC, but how do
you establish from this carbon dating that it was laid no later than
the 26th millennium BC...could we not mix and lay mortar today that
contained organic materials from 3809 BC??...
