Abstract

Excavations by T. C. Cantrill within Carreg Cennen Castle Cave in 1900 revealed stalagmite deposits, together with human remains and a perforated horse tooth, which like a number of more recent discoveries of human remains have remained undated. Cantrill’s account of his excavations and the surviving human and animal remains from the site are published in full for the first time. The horse tooth, possibly a bead or pendant, and previously suggested to be of Late Glacial age, has been radiocarbon dated to the later Roman to early medieval period and is discussed in the light of other Roman finds from the vicinity and in cave deposits in Wales and elsewhere.
