Abstract

I AM astonished to read in the abstract of the Proceedings of the Geological Society of London, No. 947, giving an account of the meeting held on November 19, 1913, the following statement:—

Prof. Sollas exhibited a series of specimens to illustrate the production of rostro-carinate forms of flint by natural agencies. The great majority were obtained by Mr. E. Heron-Allen from the beach of Selsey Bill, and it was to these that attention was especially directed. If they were all of human workmanship”Sir E. Ray Lankester's contention”there would be no difficulty in accounting for the characters which they possess in common.
