Just outside the entry to this cave, there is a tomb in which archaeologists discovered six skeletons. Three were male, two were female and one was of undetermined sex.
In the second half of the 18th century the first discoveries of prehistoric materials were made: painted ceramics, flint arrowheads, obsidian hatchets, and bone tools. These artifacts can be seen at the Museum of Molfetta's Pontifical Regional Seminary.
In the first decade of the 20th century, systematic archaeological digs were carried out in the fields around the "pulo" by prestigious archaelogists, who discovered the remains of a necropolis and a neolithic village.
