Additional Content

In 1989 A. Ronchitelli discovered a special structure at the top of level 8: circular arranged big stone slabs and a rhomboid stone in the centre, on which two natural nipples resemble eyes or female breasts. Close to the stones a cranium of a bison was deposited in a niche. Very few traces of human occupation were found at the floor around the structure.
