Descent at 300

Abstract

The October 2024 edition of Descent will be issue 300. Founded in January 1969 – when a first edition could be paid for with a half-crown coin, the Beatles were still together and humans had not yet set foot on the moon – Descent has been a huge part of the caving world for over half a century. This presentation brings together the current editor, Chris Scaife, and former editor, Chris Howes, to be interviewed on stage by our Scotland correspondent, Alan Jeffreys, about the past, present and future of the magazine of underground exploration.
