    Excerpt from The Origin and Use of the Royston Cave: Being the Substance of a Report, Some Time Since Presented to the Royal Society of Antiquaries

    More than a. Century has elapsed since ai fortunate accident led to the discovery of one of the most interesting specimens of antiquity possessed by this or any other country - éthe royston cave. So great was the curiosity occasioned by this singular occurrence, that it immediately gave rise to a, warm controversy between two eminent archaeologists of the day, Dr. William Stukeley and the Rev. Charles Perkin, in the course of which, though both parties displayed abundant learning and ingenuity, the cause of truth suffered much from their mutual loss of temper, and the too eager desire on both sides to establish a rival theory. The foibles of these literary combatants have passed away. And the present age, distinguished, unquestionably, by a. Much higher sense of the national value of the archaeological studies, When rightly conducted, and aided likewise by a. More enlarged experience of archaeological probabilities, seems to be in a better position to exercise an impartial and correct judgment on the points disputed. Recent re searches also have contributed, in some degree, to throw additional light on the origin and use of this remarkable excavation. The result has been a, revival of curiosity in several quarters, Which has ended in a request, now complied With, to publish the substance of a. Report.
