Title:Early Man
Originator:Burnard, R.
Summary:The examination of bone-caves in Devon during the past century is the main source of our knowledge of early man in the county. Devonshire has the distinction of at one time possessing Oreston, Plymouth, a bon-cave in the Devonian limestone which was systematically explored as long ago as 1816, and still having within its borders, in Kent's Cavern or Kent's Hole, the most important cave dwelling primitive man known in the country.
