  • Mood:

how cold is a cave?

I know it can get very cold in caves (inside a mountain) but would it be cold enough to preserve a human corpse throughout a summer? Say for example that near the beginning of winter a person went into a cave and died, and the body froze solid and stayed that way through winter. Would it be cold enough in the cave to keep the body preserved with minimal decomposition until the following autumn? (Assuming no intervention by animal predators or the like.)

I can have the body preserved by magical means if necessary, but I'd still like to know if it could happen naturally. Thanks in advance!!
