    Excerpt from The Bone Caves of Ojcow: In Poland

    The caves now about to be described have for a length of time been partially known to the inhabitants of the district, but they first attracted general attention some years since, when the bottoms of the caves were worked for manure, the bed of earth being rich in bones, and containing a large quantity of phosphoric acid. The Cave of Jerzmanowice more especially has yielded these results since the year 1872. The author obtained his first information respecting these works from the mining officials of Upper Silesia, who had to visit profession ally these places in Poland, and at the same time he received from this cave some single bones and teeth of the cave bear, and also some prehistoric ¿int implements. In the year 1874 a visit was made to the Cave of Jerzmanowice, and p oof was obtained that it contained a great quantity of bones of extinct animals, and also of implements of the ancient inhabitants.

    This led to the determination of undertaking a thorough investigation of these caves, and of doing this if possible before the caves were cleared of their deposits for agricultural pur poses, by which all the scientific data would be utterly lost.

    On the application of the author, the necessary funds were granted by the Royal Prussian Ministry of Instruction. Thus in the spring of 1878 the work began, and was continued all through the summer. Several thousand specimens rewarded this labour. But the whole excavation could not be made in this first summer, more especially as during the excavation of this cave many other promising caves were discovered, and it appeared highly desirable that the investigation should be continued in the course of the following summer, 1879. And this time our grateful acknowledgments are due to the Royal Academy of Sciences at Berlin.
