Cave Hunting was a pioneering attempt to correlate within a single volume the growing mass of material which had been unearthed in numerous European countries.

Examines all the different kinds of caves in different types of geological settings. Also examines more from an archaeologicla point of view what has been unearthed in caves across Europe, including artefacts and human and animal remains from the stone age to modern times.
