Photographs fron the 1977 British Speleological Expedition to the Zagros Mts, Iran. - Back to index - foward to next image -
...this lovely thing we found at the bottom of one of the deep shafts - a calcited goats skull. How old ? - who knows. We gave it to the couple in Kermanshah, Ken and Francis who had helped us so much before and after the trip. Months later they had to flee fast - the Alatollah coup took over - and they he worked at the Bell US helicopter base stationed in Kermanshah. Suppose they were not short of quick transport ! So, Ken and Francis, if you ever drop by this site - many thanks, your place was a veritable oasis - pool and all.
