In the video he says, it's from 7700 - 7600 BC. They've found lots of human remains day by day, mostly belong to infants. So far they found more than 30 people buried. They also found some carnelian beads that are alien to the area(Bronze and Iron Age carnelian bead production in the UAE and Armenia: new perspectives) (https://www.jstor.org/stable/pdf/41223969.pdf?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents.)
