Dating the lines is irrelevant to the argument, the lines are fairly
likely the result of human activity and the context in which they are
found relates to that activity.
What is important is the interpretation of these marks on this
surface. To me this looks like a cutting surface. If you cut anything
up it helps if you have a surface to cut it upon, and that is what I
think we are seeing here.
