Sleepless Nights

The grapevine is buzzing with news of a major South Wales discovery, with over 15km already surveyed. This issue of Descent carries extra pages to bring you the discovery and exploration of Ogof Draenen. What's it like to drop down a pitch into a huge chamber, to surge down open streamway passage, to gaze in awe at crystal-covered walls, or be chased down a slope by a runaway boulder? Read on....

The Slit Pot Explosion!

A caver, stuck in the Slit of Slit Pot, then ... 'A bright flash permeated the spray-soaked air, instantly followed by a loud boom! Christ, he's disintegrated!'

BCRA Conference '94

What happened at this year's conference? Five full pages of reports keep you informed.

In the Eye of the Beholder

Cave art is gaining acceptance, so much so that a new group has been established: the International Society of Speleological Arts.

The Dissident Mammoth

Rumin's Horses are stylised cave paintings, so what's so special about them? Their location, deep in a Russian cave rather than in the traditional sites of Europe.
