Synopsis

Derbyshire Cavemen explores the little known world of cave folklore and archaeology in a cave rich region encompassing the uplands of the Peak District and the surrounding areas. The WhiteA" and DarkA" Peaks of the Derbyshire/ Staffordshire/Cheshire and Yorkshire borderlands reveal their many legends and the archaeology of our prehistoric ancestors, whose DNA we share today, including Neanderthals, Ice Age reindeer hunters, Celtic chieftains, Romans, Medieval outlaws and saintly hermits, who all utilised caves as homes, hunting lodges, contemplative cells and sepulchres for the dead. Stephen Cliffe has delved into archives at Buxton and other museums, pillaging the knowledge of generations of experts on archaeology and folk history. No other writer has previously pulled together strands of information of such depth on this fascinating subject in a regional context for popular publication.
