Abstract: An account is given of the discovery and excavation of this small cave in the 1960s. It is recorded that archaeological finds were made, but of these, only a single human mandible can now be traced. Radiocarbon dating shows the specimen to be early Neolithic in age; a metrical analysis was less conclusive.
