Abstract

QUITE recently a discovery of remains of an extinct elephant has been made in Palestine. This is the first time that such remains have been discovered there, nor have they yet occurred in Syria, and it will be of interest to see if this find has any connexion with the faunas of so-called African type which have been found in several Palestinian caves associated with a Mousterian culture and human remains.
