Abstract: This paper describes the results of continuing investigations of caves and rockshelters in the Wye Valley. Excavations near the entrance of King Arthur's Cave produced an insitu assemblage of Later Mesolithic artefacts while further finds of Final Upper Palaeolithic type were made in the lower units. Work inside the cave established the disturbed nature of the sediments and examination of two further nearby caves proved archaeologically unproductive. AMS radiocarbon results from Madawg Rockshelter confirm evidence of Later Mesolithic activity at this site.
