Site Description

Deborah's Cliff Shelter is a natural cave in the steep limestone cliff face overlooking the sea. The entrance measures 1.7 meters in height and 2.7 meters in width at its base and is accessed via a narrow terrace that extends along the cliff. There is a roughly semi circular mound outside the cave entrance which measures 3.6 in diameter. The mound has yielded bone and pottery dated to the Bronze Age.
