Sažetak
Romuald's cave is located on the southern slopes of the Lim channel in Istria. It was named after St. Romuald who allegedly lived in it around year 1000. The archaeological potential of the site was realized in the late 19th century during small scale excavations by Marchesetti, and later by Gnris. Most of the archaeological and paleontological material was unearthed during excavations by M. Malez in 1961-1962, and 1973, including remains from Bronze, Iron Age, and Upper Paleolithic (including two juvenile human teeth), alongside numerous remains of Holocene and Pleistocene fauna. During excavations by D. Komšo in 2007 and 2008, several Mousterian-like artefacts were collected. In 2014 new excavations at the site started, as a part of the project entitled Archaeological investigations into the Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene of the Lim Channel, Istria, financed by the Croatian Science Foundation. Two excavation seasons (2014 and 2015) yielded archaeological material from Iron and Bronze Age, including human skeletal remains of at least two people (one adult, likely male, >35 and one juvenile <5) dated by radiocarbon to cca. 3150 BP. Lower stratigraphic sequence (dated to approx. 46 kya and over 50 kya respectively) yielded several Mousterian stone tools, confirming Neandertal presence at the site. Numerous remains of holocene and Pleistocene fauna were found (including Ursus spelaeus, Equus ferus, Cervus elaphus).
