Details of Beaker Cave rock shelter on Pastscape

A rock shelter containing Beaker-associated material was excavated in 1931 by HE Balch. The finds are in Wells Museum. Jackson (in Cullingford 1962) states that the discoveries were made in 1953, while Barrington and Stanton attribute the Beaker finds to 1931 and refer to further work in 1951. Finds included a skeleton and the remains of three other individuals, associated with a large Beaker sherd and a floor of limestone flagstones. The sherd and bones are in Wookey Hole Museum.
