Caption: Gough's Cave cranium. Fragment of a modern human (Homo sapiens) skull, showing cut marks, excavated from Gough's Cave, Cheddar Gorge, Somerset, UK. It dates from around 14,000 to 12,000 years ago in the late upper palaeolithic (Creswellian). Gough's Cave was first explored in 1890, with numerous prehistoric Stone Age bones and ivory and antler tools found in subsequent excavations.
