Cave Description: The cave is about 200m deep and at its widest the cave measures 120m. Excavations have only taken place in the right hand side of the entrance, an area slightly more than 213 sq m over a depth of around 3.5m.
Research Chronicles and Data: The Stages of occupation of this cave were split into four phases:
Phase I - There was a great deal of impresso pottery found in this stage suggesting that it was Neolithic. This phase was the worst documented yet it contains all the most important elements of this culture from other local places.
Phase II - At this stage there has been the most significant change in the relationship not the previous one, and they apply to all forms of material culture. However, these changes are quite understandable if one takes into account the fact the first and second phase separates long chronological range is conditioned by the fact that I belong to the early phase and the second phase of the later Neolithic period.
Unlike the previous phase, this phase is documented in all parts of the investigated area. Nevertheless, its full development was not possible to determine, only the squares X, XI and XII, and in its eastern parts. This phase was accompanied by Hvar culture pottery.
Observations by the excavators of the stratigraphy and typological, stylistic and ornamental characteristic of ceramic findings, allow this phase to be divided into three main stages, which will mark here as a phase II A, II B and II C.
A. This phase represented very important characteristics of Danilo culture
B. Classical Hvar style, as well as typological styles of the area. Ravlica possessed certain specific traits in its pottery, these included the use of red crusted decoration.
C. Eneolithic. Styles seem to have been influence from other places such as Bubanj and Salcuta.
Phase III – this stage was the end of the Neolithic into the Bronze Age.
Phase IV – bronze age into later cultures.
