Price's thesis examines small mammal remains from twelve cave sites in south west England and Wales. This evidence is related to each cave's archaeological evidence in order to determine the impact of humans on depositional processes in caves as well as on the wider environment outside the cave. This is a specialist study with much of the data presented in diagrams, tables and distribution maps. The sites, located in south Devon, the Mendips, Wye Valley and south Wales, include Three Holes Cave, King Arthur's Cave, Merlin's Cave and Symond's Yat East Cave.

Fossils are a key part of our natural heritage and a major scientific, educational and cultural resource. Mesozoic and Tertiary Fossil Mammals and Birds of Great Britain is the first volume of the GCR series dealing with mammal and bird fossils. Fossil mammals and birds have been found at many hundreds of localities in Britain, and there is a long history of collection and study, dating back to the earliest days of palaeontology. Many British specimens have been pivotal in major developments in the history of the sciences of palaeontology, comparative anatomy and evolution. British fossil mammal sites range through virtually the entire record of the group, from late Triassic (210 million years ago) to the present day. This volume of the GCR Series contains a description of around 30 representative sites, selected for the GCR for the Mesozoic-Tertiary part of the history of these vertebrates. The volume is a companion to the 'Pleistocene Mammals' GCR volume. The geology of each site is described along with the fauna, an interpretation and a comparison with other sites. The book allows, for the first time, the importance of British fossil mammals and birds to be fully appreciated.

As ice retreated from Britain 15,000 years ago, a host of large mammals including reindeer, wild horses, wooly mammoths, moose, wolves, brown bears, lynxes and wolverines established itself in Britain. The largest surviving wild land mammal today, the red deer, the largest contemporary land carnivore, the badger and another 65 or so extant wild mammals included about a quarter of the wild mammals that have been introduced in the last 15,000 years. The contemporary fauna, however, is largely dominated by domestic animals, such as cattle, sheep, pigs and humans. This book explores the fate of the large extinct species, as well as how, why, and when the introduced species appeared.
