Topic: [Bones of hyenas and rhinoceroses etc have been found in a cave in Yorkshire. Animal bones have also been found in caves in Europe and there has been a similar recent find near Maidstone, Kent. Buckland suggests that the bones date from a time "anterior to the deluge of Noah". Ranking dates the bones much later, suggesting they are from captive wild animals shown in nearby Roman amphitheatres. Other remains (of elephants and mammoths) in Behring`s Straits, Ranking believes came from animals belonging to the Turks, Moguls and Chinese and carried by river to the Arctic. The Athenaeum waits for the bones to be compared with those of modern animals]
