Abstract:
[ST 5347] Excavations demonstrated that disposal of bodies in the cave had continued for about a century. Pottery, coins of late 3rd century, personal ornaments and hobnails were found among the flood-disturbed remains of at least twenty-eight individuals (men, women and children). Sediment analysis revealed high levels of lead attributable to the Mendip lead industry.
