BADGER HOLE

DESCRIPTION + /

A small cave situated on Barrow Scout, about 300 yards south west of Dog Holes Cave (SD 47 SE 2). Excavations in the late 19th or early 20th century by Jackson uncovered a collection of animal bones, plus some charcoal. The only possible artefacts were a fragment of "an apparent bone handle" and a piece of worked antler. A Roman date has been suggested, but this seems to rely solely on evidence for Romano-British use of other caves in the vicinity. Scheduled.
