In this work we present the results of the analysis of pottery
assemblages from the interior section of Pupićina Cave, which
was excavated in 2001. We determined four prehistoric
chronological phases that belonged to the Middle Neolithic,
Late Neolithic/Early Eneolithic, Late Eneolithic/Early Bronze
Age and the Middle Bronze Age. The last phase is Roman/
Medieval. The material from the Middle Neolithic and Middle
Bronze Age phase is very similar to the material from the
outer section of the cave, which points to the simultaneous
settlement of the entire cave in these periods. The appearance
of Eneolithic layers that were not recorded in the fore section
of the cave shows that it was also in use during that period.
