Abstract: This paper describes the preliminary results and conclusions from the excavations which took place in Read's Cavern during April and May 2010. The excavation revealed intact Iron Age archaeological deposits consistent with the UBSS excavations from the 1920s. Multiple phases of use were identified from a combination of the excavation and reports on previous fieldwork. A consequence of the 2010 excavations is a reinterpretation of the Iron Age use of Read's Cavern.
