Description On the northern coast of the Island a row of closely spaced clusters of pottery fragments were found. They either belong to a single settlement, which was big, or to two settlements with small find-spots that lie between them. The small offshore islands are believed to have formed a crescent-formed peninsula which created a big bay. Because of the density of the finds the bay must have had a big population, at least for a short time.
