    Hyenas at the Crags

    Our latest special exhibition is proving a real draw for visitors.  Centred on the find of a baby hyena skeleton in Pin Hole Cave in the 1980s, this exhibition is based on groundbreaking work by Jane Ford of Sheffield University, which reveals that Creswell was a major denning area 30,000 year ago.  The exhibition is free, and open every weekend 10.00-4.30 until the end of January and then daily until 17 April.
