Abstract

OUR evidence for the post-Cambrian age of the Saline Series, based upon microfossils in the rock-salt and marl, was already clear and ample1,2. It has since been greatly reinforced by the discovery, both at Khewra and Warchha, of similar fossils in dolomites, dolomitic limestones and shales belonging to the Series, which do not admit of the remotest suspicion that any foreign matter was washed in, faulted in or caught up by later earth movements.
