715 Harboro and Rainster Rocks

"Everything was clean and neat, shelves with earthenware, pewter and brass". No, Daniel Defoe, author of Robinson Crusoe, was not describing a house, but Harboro Rocks cave where a family lived with their five children. Yet Rainster Rocks was occupied even earlier for it was an important Roman settlement.
