Research Chronicles and Data: The main feature of the occupation area would be the four hearths. On each flat area within the cave, there are two hearths. They are fashioned from primitive stone circles however they seem to have been reused and looked after, as ash and charcoal have been found in or around the hearths suggesting that the structures had been cleaned.
