Site Notes

OSullivan/etal/1996, 287: `Christ's valley: also known as Christ's Saddle, this broad U-shaped depression occurs 130m above sea level midway between the two peaks of the island...The large natural shelter is located near the lower W slope of Christ's Valley. It consists of a very large slab-boulder which inclines against a near vertical rock-face. Three upright slabs have been positioned at its open E end, where an entrance gap, .35m wide x .9m high, occurs. The interior of the earth-covered, may be stone-paved'.
