Amongst other things, many important objects were found, such as the well preserved Roman wooden anchor in the waters of Caska or the bronze necklace dating from the end of the 10th or the beginning of the 11th century, which is an unique example of early Christian jewelry.

An artifact of great value and extreme interest is the unique ancient aqueduct from the first century, which is carved into solid rock, about 1.2 km long, 70 cm wide and 40 m high with 9 overhead openings (also called odiha in Croatian).
