The beginnings of the excavation campaign can be seen around 2016, when a first hearth was discovered. But around her, valuable artifacts have been brought back into vogue. According to the first analyzes made by the team, it was possible to date everything at the end of the last ice Age.
The place of discovery is located in a very large area which, according to scholars, could be the bed of a river. The group was amazed by what they learned, when not only bird bones (now coal), but also weapons were found around them.
From these first discoveries, it was considered appropriate to continue the research which brought to light, thanks to the radar, the presence of approximately 88 footprints belonging to man dating back more than 12 thousand years. Studies have shown that they belong to both adult men and children.
