Notes

Abstract:
Preliminary research on a new sample of damaged and marked human bones excavated from Gough's Cave, Somerset in 1986-1987, indicates that human corpses were dismembered by the late glacial inhabitants of the site. Macroscopic and microscopic observation of marks made by stone tools indicate that dismemberment took place at or shortly after the time of death and some patterning is evident in the method of defleshing. Interpreting the significance of this activity in terms of human behaviour is difficult at present.
