Looking out from the entrance of Paviland Cave
In this cave, also know as Goat's Hole Cave, were discovered in 1823 the bones of "The Red Lady of Paviland". Radio carbon dating has now dated these to around 33,000 years ago in the Palaeolithic era, and they constitute the oldest known ceremonial burial in Western Europe. At the time of the burial, the site was far from the coast and overlooked a plain.
