Occupation of the site at greater than c. 22000 BP is associated with heavy duty stone tools and an array of large fauna. An hiatus in human occupation represented by animal remains of bats and leopards is followed by a series of occupations dated between c. 1800 and 5300 BP, associated with wild and domestic animal remains. Recent occupation of the site is represented by ceramics and glass beads.
