First excavated by Victorian antiquarians in 1876, Church Hole and other caves at the Crags were re-excavated in 2006 by archaeologists from the University of Sheffield using modern techniques. Sifting through the debris created by the Victorian excavations the dig has shed even more light on the thoughts and processes of the people that explored the cave over 200 years ago.

“We often focus on how the tools and techniques of archaeologists have changed over the years,” says Exhibitions officer at Creswell Crags, Anna Griffiths. “However, this exhibition shows how the aims and motives of the archaeologists have changed, and what a dramatic effect this has had.”
