The Ciota Ciara cave, mainly known for its Middle Palaeolithic phase, was inhabited by a small community in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages. Surprisingly, among the finds of this remote and simple settlement are imports from Mediterranean regions such as Africa and the Aegean, perhaps mediated by a nearby town. Scholars think some of the finds may point to a small monastic community that was living here.
