Abstract: A catalogue of all the extant and reasonably recorded lost Roman-British material derived from the caves of Cheddar Gorge is presented. The vast majority of finds are from the third and fourth century. The smaller and relatively inaccessible caves (Sun Hole, Soldier's Hole) were used as hideaways, but the larger caves (Gough's Old Cave, Long Hole) saw domestic occupation and possibly metalworking activities.
