A free exhibition focusing on the work of Father John MacEnery, the first scientific explorer of the cavern, and William Pengelly. Intrigued by MacEnery's discoveries that ancient humans had coexisted with extinct Ice Age animals, Pengelly led a 15-year excavation of Kents Cavern between 1865 and 1880. He used a revolutionary new recording technique to establish scientific proof of human antiquity, and his pioneering work is now recognised as inventing modern archaeological recording. Find out about the Kents Cavern Jawbone, excavated in 1926 and at 41,000 years old, Britain's oldest human fossil.
