The cave has its name because of two circular holes in the ceiling. When the first humans protected themselves from the bitter cold, the holes were probably mainly smoke exhaust. In the back of the cave, archaeologists found a small stone wall, probably with animal skins separated a room that could be kept even better. They also found remnants of tools, spearheads and hearths, as well as drop-shaped ivory and human bone beads with notches, as they arise when you scrape off the raw meat - probably traces of a burial ritual.
