The discoveries are currently in Oxford for radiocarbon dating, archaeologist Marcel Burić has told Hina.
The results of that analysis will be completed in January 2022, and they will indicate whether or not people had existed on this Croatian island also before the early Neolithic.
The exploration was triggered off by the results of the doctoral thesis of researcher Alen Miletić who has studied the topography of prehistoric sites on the western side of Hvar.
Babina Špilja is at an altitude of 200 metres.
Burić said that researchers of Columbia University in the City of New York and of La Sapienza in Rome are included in the project of exploration of this site.
