Descent (223), December 2011, with eight extra pages

The Caves of the Haut-Languedoc

Put thirty-plus cave photographers of international standing together in one place for a week and the likely outcome is a whole load of top quality pictures. Here, then, are just some of the results in another of our extra-page special editions of Descent. The links mentioned in the article are available HERE.

At Last, a Reality

For over four decades cavers have striven to connect a series of caves to form the Three Counties System. The breakthrough on 6 November 2011 made that prediction a reality.

Once You Taste It ...

Artur Kozlowski – a pioneer cave diver renowned and held in high regard for his discoveries in Irish caves – died while following his dream: to explore, ever onwards.

Found and Lost

Discovering a prehistoric drawing in a British cave is an incredibly rare occurrence, despite decades of searching. This makes the motives behind its subsequent destruction impossible to understand.

Hidden Earth at Monmouth

The 2011 annual Hidden Earth event in Monmouth proved to be one of the best ever with plenty to interest everyone.
