Dipinti Cave Building
In July 2016, the team began an archaeological excavation of the Dipinti Cave Building - a multi-roomed building that articulated with the Dipinti Cave. This structure is located a few meters north of the modern road leading up to the site. One main wall of the building (Wall 1) is still standing—it measures approximately 3 x 5 m and includes an exposed doorway and window. The remains of other walls are evident. During the excavation, the team opened up two squares to learn more about this building.
