Abstract:

Palaeontological excavations in the Sloup caves (northern part of the Moravian Karst)

The Sloup caves (northern part of the Moravian Karst) have been known since the 17th century owing to an extraordinary quantity of fossil bones. Palaeontological excavations were started there in the 1850s by J. Wankel and they were pursued by M. Kříž.

In 1986, a revision research was opened with the aim to verify and analyse the unique sequence of strata with finds of the species Ursus spelaeus, reported already by J. Wankel and to determine the position of intact sediments.
