John E. Mylroie and Ira D. Sasowsky' Caves occupy incongruous positions in either our tradition and our technology. The oldest documents of modem human tradition are the vibrant cave work from southern France and northerly Spain, that are now and again greater than 30,000 years outdated (Chauvet, et ai, 1996). but, to name somebody a "caveman" is to claim them primitive and ignorant. Caves, being cryptic and mysterious, occupied very important roles in lots of cultures. for instance, Greece, a rustic with plentiful karst, had the oracle at Delphi and Hades the god of loss of life operating from caves. everyone is either attracted to and mortified through caves. Written files ofcave exploration exist from as early as 852 BC (Shaw, 1992). within the decade of the 1920's, which was once wealthy in information occasions, the second one largest tale (as measured through column inches of newsprint) used to be the entrapment of Floyd Collins in Sand Cave, Kentucky, united states. This was once exceeded basically by way of Lindbergh's flight around the Atlantic (Murray and Brucker, 1979).
