Prehistoric Epochs

Article metrics


I DO not think that the English authors who have written on prehistoric times have divided the Pleistocene in epochs, as Prof. G. de Mortillet has done in France. Would it be possible to use in England subdivisions similar, or almost similar, to those used in France, and almost generally adopted, although that classification is often subject to criticism?
