Going underground

Bats, stalactites and prehistoric remains will be the order of the day at the cave science symposium on March 9. The symposium brings together biologists, archaeologists, geographers, geologists and environmental scientists from throughout the UK, all with one thing in common – a passion for holes in the ground.

Subjects covered include the formation of cave systems, particularly in the limestone areas of Yorkshire, speleothems (stalactites and stalagmites), archaeological discoveries of early cave-dwelling humans in Albania and the Near East, and more recent inhabitants of cave systems – bats.

The event takes place at the school of earth sciences. For more details, contact Phil Murphy on ext 35224 or email
