Italian term or phrase: tafoni o conche
Buongiorno, dovrei tradurre il termine "tafoni", detto anche "conche" nel testo. La frase è la seguente: "...l'uomo nell'età neolitica ha saputo adattarsi ad una natura aspra utilizzando le cavità rocciose quali dimore occasionali poste a ridosso degli approdi naturali. Questi semplici ricoveri, chiamati tafoni o conche...."

Ti fornisco questo estratto:
"Over hundreds to tens of thousands of years, the tafone (pl. tafoni) weathering pattern evolves in distinct stages, from tiny pits to large caves. 3,500-year-ago, the Minoans first documented stages of tafoni evolution in magnificent fresco paintings. Currently, understanding of the tafone form is restricted because geomorphologists cannot adequately explain the presence of similarly shaped cavernous landforms for such diverse rock types and climates. "

Puoi optare per una delle soluzioni che ti ho fornito. sono tutte valide ed equivalenti.
Per quanto riguarda il termine conca io mi atterrei alla prima definizione dell'estratto: TINY PITS
