The Origin & Use of The Royston Cave

Jeremy Lander, Ed. (Joseph Beldam 1858)

Joseph Beldam was one of the principal members of the Anti-Slavery Society, although few people know his name. He lived in Royston, Herts, and in later life turned to antiquarian pursuits, becoming fascinated with the town’s bee-hive shaped man-made cave. In 1852, Beldam carried out a study of the cave and its mysterious carvings with his friend and fellow antiquarian Edmund Nunn. Their findings were presented to the Royal Society of Antiquaries in the 1860s.

To mark the 150th anniversary of Beldam’s death, Jeremy Lander has edited Beldam’s transcript, which can be read here →
