Since the excavation, in 1890, Gough’s Cave has gained an international reputation for its historical and geological significance. The cave was the home of ‘Cheddar Man’; Britain’s oldest, complete skeleton found in 1903. It is also the site of the largest underground river system in Britain. To learn more take a guided tour through the impressive caves and visit the Museum of Prehistory.
