Abstract: In September 2010 an engraving was discovered in Cathole Cave on the Gower peninsula in South Wales which has been interpreted as a possible representation of a cervid. Uranium series dating of calcite which overlays part of the engraving has been dated to approx. 12,500 BP suggesting a possible Upper Palaeolithic date for the figure.
