There are three distinct periods of the Neolithic which were identified from the pottery found. The early Neolithic was represented by Impresso and Barbotine pottery, this fine black pottery found here is rarely found elsewhere. The Middle Neolithic was characterised by black ware and grey and black ware with incised geometric relief, of the Danuvec-Cakran type. Finally the late Neolithic was characterised by painted ware with coffee colour on a plain background, of the Maliq-Kamnik type.
