Abstract: The radiocarbon dates that have been obtained over the last fifteen years or so for material from archaeological sites belonging to the late Pleistocene and (mainly the earlier part of) the Holocene in the neighbourhood of Cheddar are reviewed and some of their implications assessed. Several of these sites would provide, from among human and faunal remains in extant collections, further highly suitable material for dating, especially by the new and virtually non-destructive small-sample techniques and in aprticular by the accelerator (AMS) method.
