Hanging Rock Caves

Cave / Rock Shelter


These caves were excavated in 1908 and were found to contain an iron knife, a socketed spearhead, bone button, parts of glass armlets, a whetstone, a deer horn pick, a bronze pin etc. In other words- remains of several occupations. All the finds relate to the early Iron Age. The wall built across the larger cave is reckoned to date between the 4th and 12th centuries. Posted by Martin
