The first and second areas extend away fom each other at the back of the cave, the third area is a small narrow chamber to the north west side and is only about 1m deep. The final area is the porch, which extends 10m outwards and is 50m in width created by the natural slope of the ground.
Research Chronicles and Data: Gardini discovered early Neolithic flint tools, handmade ceramics, hearths and domesticated animal bones, however Gardini’s investigations happened in 1939 on behalf of the Italian Archaeological Mission to Albania and much more work has been done on the site since 2001.
