Section through the Paviland cave, found in 1822. Drawing from Buckland’s Reliquae diluvianae.

However, Buckland regarded it as an intrusive deposit and rejected it as proof of the existence of a fossil human being.

Rhinoceros skeleton found in a cave in a mine at Callow. Drawing from Buckland’s Reliquae diluvianae. The excavation methods shown here were quite meticulous for the period.
