DURING a recent visit to Northern Ireland, one of us (J. P. T. B.) found in gravel lying between two Boulder Clays exposed in the valley of the River Carey, and in glacial gravel in the Dun valley, in Co. Antrim, a series of flint implements of Lower Palæolithic types. Other examples of these specimens, easily distinguishable by their forms, condition, and flaking from later artefacts, as well as from naturally flaked stones, were also discovered in certain post-glacial gravel-spreads of these two rivers.
