Cave / Rock Shelter


Coflein description:

Superficially a 5m wide, 2m-3m deep rock shelter, the cave can in fact be traced back through a narrow opening as a passage 20m or so in length. It proved to contain a sequence of deposits, possibly several metres in thickness, filling the cave almost to its roof, though the sequence had been disturbed by an ancient badger set.

Partial examination produced evidence of early-mesolithic occupation from a scree deposit overlying the Pleistocene deposit. There is potential for recovery of undisturbed palaeolithic material at greater depth.
