Abstract: The age of the peat, or 'lignite', layer in the Port Durnford Formation on the Zululand coast has been established to be about 70 kyr by means of the Th-230/U-234 disequilibrium dating technique. This date places the pent temporally at the beginning of Isotope Stage 4, which is compatible with the palynological interpretation presented previously.
