Abstract:
A small programme of archaeological excavations undertaken at Wemyss Caves for Channel 4's Time Team investigated areas both inside and just outside three of the caves (Well Cave, Jonathan's Cave and Sliding Cave) and part of an eroding coastal section. Excavations within the caves confirmed earlier findings of midden material that was radiocarbon dated to the Iron Age, as well as floor surfaces and an ancient soil horizon. Evidence for prehistoric cultivation was recovered in the form of ard marks and cereal grains, mostly barley. A new Pictish carving, possibly a serpent, was discovered in Sliding Cave but there was no evidence for any corresponding Pictish occupation or activity.
