Evidence of the first known murder -- 430,000 years ago

"Anthropologists are always asking what makes us human, and are humans inherently violent," said Danielle Kurin, a forensic anthropologist at UC Santa Barbara.

That is because the assistant professor of earth and environmental sciences at Vanderbilt University is a member of a small group of earth scientists who are pioneering in the use of mineral cave deposits, collectively known as speleothems, as proxies for the prehistoric climate.

Historical Cave Lengths

Searching for historical cave lengths...

NSS Cavers -

I'm searching for whatever data I can find on the known (or estimated) lengths of caves in 1941. While I realize there will be little data from back then, anything I can find would be helpful. CaverBob's data goes back to 1979, but Dave Bunnell​ suggested the national parks might have localized information.

Any ideas from the hive mind?
