A masterpiece of historic cave surveying : several representations of Miremont-Rouffignac cave, (Dordogne, France), XVIII-XIXTH centuries

Abstract : Miremont-Rouffignac is a horizontal cave, more than 4 km long; it seems like a true maze. Here we present three unpublished surveys which have been drawn up between ca. 1765 and 1824. They have just been re-discovered and they are really spectacular. When Martel came to Miremont-Rouffignac in 1893, at least five different maps of the cave had already been drawn.
