Abstract: An account is given of the various excavations of Bone Hole, Cheddar Gorge, and of the subsequent history and current whereabouts of the finds recovered from the cave. It is probable that upwards of 25 individuals (MNI 18+) were interred in the cave, reportedly including one crouched burial. The earliest dated burial comes from the Early Bronze Age and the latest from the 8th century AD.
