Abstract

SINCE the Abbé Breuil published his view1 that the palæolithic 'floor' at Baker's Hole, Northfleet, belongs to the Levallois I–II stage of his classification, some Pleistocene workers2 have been inclined to follow him in correlating the superincumbent Coombe Rock with the cold phase which produced the Rissien soli-fluxion of the Somme succession.
