Caption: Prehistoric objects from Gough's Cave. Replicas and specimens of artefacts found in Gough's Cave, Cheddar Gorge, Somerset. Gough's Cave was first explored in 1890, with numerous prehistoric Stone Age bones and ivory and antler tools found in subsequent excavations. Most of findings date to around 12,000 years ago. The markings on the objects indicate the type of tools being used at the time. Some of the markings on the human bones are thought to indicate cannibalism. These items are part of a collection housed at the Natural History Museum, London, UK.
