Abstract

MR. MARSTON'S discovery of parts of a human skull deep in the gravel of the 100-ft. terrace of the Lower Thames at Swanscombe is of great importance and significance. Thanks to the careful and scientific manner in which this discovery was treated by him, there can remain no doubt that these human bones were indeed in situ in the gravel and formed an integral part of it.
