Details to this Site

1964 test-pit excavated by F. Mezzena outside of the shelter.
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).

Broglio 2006
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.

Peresani 2003:
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.
