Palæolithic Implements from the Valley of the Ver

Article metrics


THE river Ver rises at Markyate Street, near Dunstable, at the junction of Hertfordshire with Bedfordshire, and runs to St. Albans, whose ancient name Verulamium is derived from the river. Leaving St. Albans, the river becomes the Colne and joins the Thames at Staines. Many Palæolithic implements have been found by myself and others in the valley of the Colne, but up to now none have been recorded from the valley of the Ver.
