Domestic camels appear too early in Bible, archaeologists say
Camels probably had little or no role in the lives of such early Jewish patriarchs as Abraham, Jacob and Joseph, who lived in the first half of the second millennium B.C., and yet stories about them mention these domesticated pack animals more than 20 times.

So archaeologist have an exact day when camels became domesticated? I think not.. Perhaps a range of dates where they think camels are likely to have been domesticated and even this range of dates is not written in concrete. It only means as of this time that is all the data archaeologist have to answer the question of when camels were domesticated. At any time they may find data that will require them to adjust that range of dates. Nothing archaeologist say is a certainty is a certainty. Archaeologist deal in probability based on data at the moment.
