The Cave has been excavated for more than 70 years now. Them main findings are the femur of a Neanderthal, and the remains of a wooden basket. There was a tool shop of the Mousterian leaving behind 2,200 flint stone tools, and again during the Gravettian. The early excvations in the 1930s were made by achaeologists around L. Cardini, president of the Istituto Italiano di Paleontologia Umana (Italian Institute of Human Paleontology). The findings are on display at the Museo Civico Archeologico at Bisceglie, which is located in the Monastero Santa Croce.
