Descent (177), April 2004

Brits Abroad

With British expeditions shaping up for the coming year, here are the details of where and when and how much.

The Lows and Highs of Pant Mawr: Ogof Cragen and Pwll Pindar

Two teams have been working on different parts of the Pant Mawr system in South Wales: a dig in the valley has revealed Ogof Cragen, tying into Pant Mawr with a dye-trace, while high on the moors the draughts in Pwll Pindar are lending credence to the size of the caverns that wend their way below.

Filming the Forest’s Bones

Popular archaeology is proving, well, more popular than ever. There’s a new television series with a penchant for extreme places scheduled. That means caves!

Them Words

Amaze your friends with some cave-related, tongue-twisting words.

Taking on Wookey’s Depths

Wookey’s Sump 25 is again attracting cave divers. This isn’t an easy place to reach, let alone to push, with high currents and shifting gravel. But Mike Barnes reckons he has the answer ...

Aven Calling

Not content with digging a new route into Gaping Gill via Hensler’s Pot, Dave Haigh and his team have been busy with a nearby shakehole. However, the word ‘overkill’ comes to mind when they attempt a smoke test.

Casualty Underground

As the dramatic events of a TV soap unfolded, cavers could hardly believe the storyline. Here’s how Casualty was shot.

Dating without Destruction

Dating stal requires taking samples, which invariably results in damage. Surely there must be some better way of minimalising mutilations. Just so, with a new technique tried out in the Dales.

Taking the Toob

Take note of three simple questions and find the answers as you read this issue of Descent; there’s a useful prize on offer.

Destination Slovenia

Slovenia’s world-class caves make it an ideal destination for an expedition or simply a holiday break.
