Abstract: The stratigraphy of the Late Quaternary deposits is described. There is similarity to the sequence at Gough's Cave, Cheddar. At both sites cave earth yielded late Upper Palaeolithic flint tools together with human and animal bones, and is succeeded by stalagmite which began to be formed around 9000 BP. The cave earth at Aveline's Hole was extensively reworked after its deposition, and the depths of finds does not offer information as to their relative ages.
