Open-Air Sites of the Upper Palæolithic Period in Kent and North Lincolnshire

Nature volume 143, pages 643644 (15 April 1939) | Download Citation



FROM time to time I have recorded in the columns of NATURE the discovery of artefacts and pottery fragments in lateral valleys of the Lower Thames. The geological conditions under which these finds were made caused me to attribute to them an Upper Palæolithic date; a precedent for which is to be found in the discoveries and claims made by Mr. J. Reid Moir, as a result of investigations conducted by him at Ipswich during the past twenty years.
