Cast your mind back to over ten thousand years ago. Woolly mammoths, woolly rhino, wolves and even reindeer were roaming the Uk. Early modern humans took shelter in caves and lived a nomadic hunting lifestyle. 

Today, we know so much about our past from archaeological remains and discovering sites of occupation like caves. 

In Sherford, Plymouth. A property development company is creating 5,500 houses. However, in their work they have discovered a cave. Filled with signicant ice age remains, like a wolf skeleton, a woolly Mammoth tusk and perhaps even some evidence of human occupation. 

For the developers, this is simply an inconvenience. For us, it's our history. 

They plan to potentially seal the cave off, by filling the entrance with concrete. In doing so, all that history will be lost forever. 

This campaign is a story of David and Goliath. A story of a corporate machine that cares about money. We're not suggesting they stop the development, but simply ask them to #savethecave.

Please sign our petition to protect the entrance, and add a unique presence to this new town in Plymouth.
