Archaeological excavations in Romuald’s Cave Lim Channel, Istria, Croatia have yielded evidence of human activity stretching back to the Middle Palaeolithic. This paper reports on recent Bronze Age-Early Iron Age discoveries uncovered during excavations as part of the Croatian National Science Foundation funded project: -Archaeological Investigations into the Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene of the Lim Channel, Istria.- Fragmentary skeletal remains from at least two individuals were excavated, and a direct radiocarbon date from one of the remains is commensurate with a Bronze Age attribution. The recovered ceramics confirm this age attribution, although they range from the Middle Bronze Age to incipient Iron Age in character. Furthermore, the ceramics indicate that the human activities in Romuald’s Cave were associated with the nearby settlements of Gradina and St. Martin.
