Description of Location: Ravne 3 tunnels cut through the Ravne conglomerate rock unit. Fragments of the pots were found at a depth of 22 m near stalagmites, on the left side, by the wall and partially buried in the floor upside down.  Shape of side tunnel indicates it is not a natural cavity. On this location we found 78 fragments of the pots and we handed them over for further analysis by the Local Museum in Visoko.

Fragments were found in February 2019, far from the formed stalagmites that we previously submitted for analysis.
