    Abstract

    SINCE the memorable researches of Dr. Buckland in the early part of last century, the exploration of British caves has had a great fascination for many investigators. This is no matter for surprise, for there are many points of interest which await elucidation regarding prehistoric man and the animals by which he was surrounded in very early times, and there is a great probability that some of these problems will be solved by cavern researches. When we remember, also, how much has already been revealed by cave hunting, we are led to hope for more in the future, and consequently investigations in this direction raise our expectations.
