Abstract

IN my former letters, NATURE, vol. xxiii. p. 604, vol. xxiv. p. 29, I cited instances of the occurrence of these objects at great heights, indicating great antiquity, at the north and south of London. After the positions of the implements on the different old river terraces are considered, their numbers, as compared with the amount of material excavated, is a subject of considerable interest, as these numbers indicate in a broad way the amount of human population.
