Prehistory of Northern Africa


    AST important study of the archaeology and racial history of the western area of North Africa, published by the Institut de Paleontologie humaine, arises out of the investigation by M. C. Arambourg in the years 1927-30 of a series of caves in the hills which fringe the Gulf of Bougie on the coast of Algeria. Several of these caves were already known to archaeologists and palaeontologists, and finds in them have been described from time to time, but no systematic investigation had been undertaken previously.
