Abstract: Continuing survey and excavation work was undertaken in 1995 by the Wye Valley Caves Project. Efforts were focused on King Arthur's Cave (entrance), Madawg Rockshelter and two new caves in Coldwell Rocks. The results show that a well-preserved Lateglacial sequence with artefacts still survives at King Arthur's Cave. The Late Mesolithic levels at Madawg were further sampled for carbonised plant remains and cowrie shells. Iron Age evidence was obtained from one of the Coldwell sites.
