Creswell Crags

Cave / Rock Shelter

Creswell Crags (Cave / Rock Shelter) by baza This replica of a horse drawn on a piece of rib bone found in Robin Hood's Cave depicts the only object of portable art portraying an animal from the Upper Palaeolithic yet to be found in Britain. It is on display at the Creswell Crags' Visitor Centre. The original is in the British Museum, not on display at present.
(Update: In July 2009 I saw the original artefact in the new Visitor Centre at Creswell Crags, on loan from the B.M.)
