M. Cremaschi (1992c) subdivided the exterior sediment sequence into two large units: the first and oldest one (layer 0-5: sandy soil with "stone lines" of corroded elements) and the second unit (layer 6-12: loess, rich in rubble beds, OIS 4). The interior sequence is divided into units A and D, with Mousterian (A13-4), Aurignacien (A3-A1, D6-D3) and Gravettian (D1d) levels. Radiometric dates for layers A11-4 indicate an age between 42.000 and 35-34.000 years for the last Mousterian occupation, and between 35.-34. and 32.000 BP for the Aurignacien. Aurignacian levels yielded numerous hearths post-holes, piles of waste and concentrations of ochre. Excavations 1964 test-pit excavated by F. Mezzena outside of the shelter. Since 1988 excavated under supervision of Prof. A. Broglio (Univ. Ferara) and M. Cremaschi (Univ. Milan I). They concentrate on the interior of the cave. Part of macro-unit A (A13-A4) dates back to the middle Würm.
