Great story and images Michael;so many deep connections in time and places. I must be from the late Pilocene also, but my plaque, if there was one, probably rotted away in the East Texas humidity! Wonderfully detailed little fly through video on Geoff's BLDGBLOG.

All children should grow up with nearby caves, the fastest way to learn to love the earth below. Less relevant, but irresistible, this passage from Lyttleton's Britain, the gazetteer from I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue:
"It's well documented in official records that the city's original name was 'Snottingham' or 'home of Snotts', but when the Normans came, they couldn't pronounce the initial letter 'S', so decreed the town be called 'Nottingham' or the 'home of Notts'. It's easy to understand why this change was resisted so fiercely by the people of Scunthorpe."
