Abstract: We present 52 mass-spectrometric U-series ages for speleothem and travertine samples from important Pleistocene mammalian faunal sites in England and Wales. All samples were analysed as part of the Ancient Human Occupation of Britain projects. Ages range from >350 ka (thousand years) to ~5 ka and the majority of calcite material was deposited during interglacial periods.
