Here the AA. present the soil description and analysis for Danilo Bitinj. The site, farmed for at least 7000 yeras, is located at the center of Danilo Polje. Field observation reveals fine soils (clay and silty-clay), and lime- and dolostone bedrock. The reason for the site's long agricultural use-life may be its fertility, making the valley-bottom ideal for agriculture, even in times of drought or resource-stress. These findings present an interesting scenario in terms of human behavioral ecology : that despite the soil's sodicity, Danilo may have represented a moist and productive resource refuge
