Glacial Man in America

    Article metrics


    THE Division of Anthropology and Psychology of the National Research Council of the United States of America, which, by its scheme of organised cooperation throughout the middle west, is doing much to ensure the recording and preservation of objects of archæological interest already known or casually discovered, as well as to promote research, has now directed attention to the possibility of obtaining evidence relating to the existence of glacial man in America from casual or commercial excavation, especially in centres where there is evidence of glaciation. American anthropologists have been much impressed by the frequency with which relics of prehistoric man have been unearthed in Europe in the course of commercial excavation, to which the attention of the expert has been attracted, or on which the workmen have been warned to be on the look-out for anything of an unusual character.
