In November 2015 Dr Giuseppina Mutri (University of Cambridge) started a systematic and extensive flotation of the Mesolithic layers excavated at the site of Vlakno Cave on Dugi Otok, wonderful Island in the Adriatic Sea (Croatia). All sediment excavated during the November campaign was selected for flotation and processed using fresh water. The numerous samples of charcoal and charred remains of plants collected during the flotation are currently under study.

Dr Dario Vujević, site director and professor at the University of Zadar was involved as project partner.
