On the walls and ceiling, they noticed carved symbols, which later turned out to be a spell against evil spirits and witches.
The cave inscriptions, according to the researchers, did not allow the demons to get out of the underworld and cause harm to humans.
Typically, such symbols the ancient people drew near doorways, Windows, fireplaces and the building of churches. Such inscriptions were often found in caves, where, according to old beliefs, and came evil spirits. However, a new discovery — the largest and most interesting collection of spells — there are more than a hundred.
