Short Description:
Chamber D used in the finds recording system during the excavation in 1870-78

Interpretation

    • Chamber extends to the left of Chamber A and was entered via a small opening in the right side of Chamber A. Originally a low chamber, the current size is due to the removal of deposits during the 1870-78 excavation. This chamber contained artefacts from the Lower Palaeolithic and the Ipswichian interglacial.
