Cave Description: On the hill-side of the mountain Velebit, 20km north-west of Gospic. The cave was originally in the massif of the canyon of the river Lika. The entrance into the cave is today 30m above the level of the artificial lake created several years ago. 12m high x 4m wide. Because of its inaccessibility, the cave was used through ages as a temporary shelter during the wars or any other danger. THe size and shape of the cave resembles a smaller round assembly hall in which number of blocks of stone have been reloced from the entrance and had slipped further inside. 14m deep, 13m wide and 7m high. The ground gradually descends from the entrance at an incline of 25 “ and a drop of 8.5m. The best location for excavation were those close to the side walls of the cave.
Research Chronicles and Data: The best location for excavation were those close to the side walls of the cave. In fact, this recess was used as a ditch for disposal of litters so that most of the findings originate from there.
Neolithic: Two fragments of ceramics were found in block 2 which belong to the group of findings from the locality Danilo-Bitinj at Sibenik. These two fragments are interesting because it represents the first trace of neolithic ceramics on the territory of Lika.
