Yes, what else ?
On point is, that bits and pieces, deriving from the same goat, might 
in all probability belong together and will, in all probability have 
been written on within a short time-frame (one to a couple of years)
Another point is, no need to make a C14 test on 20 bits from the very 
same goat. One C14-test pr. goat would suffice.
