The Collection

Dig A Little Deeper

The Trust is a registered Museum and holds a collection of nearly 100,000 objects. Many of these objects are the bones of small mammals found during excavations at Pin Hole Cave in the 1980s. Other objects include flint stone tools and bones of large mammals found during earlier excavations in other caves at Creswell Crags. 

Objects found during excavations at Creswell Crags are scattered amongst 37 museums in England, Scotland and Ireland. We work closely with many of these institutions to ensure that the public has access to as many of our objects as possible. Our museum currently has long-term loan agreements with The British Museum, The Natural History Museum and many others.

We also have large Comparative and Handling Collections. These feature objects from Creswell Crags and further afield, and provide an educational resource for students, academics and special interest groups.

Below is our collection of six objects that tell the story of Creswell Crags! Our staff members will be selecting their favourite artefacts and adding to this page over time. If you are conducting research and would like any more information on the objects in our care please contact our Curator This email address is being protected from spambots.
