End of the First Week of Exacavations in 2008

Members of ATEP team began this year's excavation on June 02. We started the excavation by opening one trench in the vicinity of last year's Trench 2 at the end of the cave's long entrance corridor. After the first week we have reached the neolithic layers and we were able to find (again) in situ strata, which further confirm the prehistoric presence in the cave. It is our main goal to attempt to unravel the most likely use of the Ay. Triadha cave by the end of this field season. Our current finds consist of pottery, chipped stone (obsidian) tools, bone, and other evidence of the cave's use.
