Excavations at Gough's Cave, Somerset 1986–7

  • A. P. Currant (a1), R. M. Jacobi (a2) and C. B. Stringer (a1)
Extract

The British Isles, at the northern fringes of human occupation in Pleistocene Europe, offer a collection of Upper Palaeolithic sites which cannot match the riches of the continental mainland. And many of its sites, studied in the 19th century, have been much quarried or even quarried out. New finds from Gough's Cave — one of the classic sites that was almost emptied in the work that made it classic-show, nevertheless, that important new discoveries are still being made from such deposits as remain.
