How to use "Earliest" in context?

The earliest humans are difficult to accurately date due to their lack of skeletal material. However, archeologists have developed methods to estimate the age of artifacts that have been dated based on other evidence. One tool that archeologists use to determine the age of an artifact is radiocarbon dating. Radiocarbon dating provides an estimate of the time period in which an object was created.
