Resource identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are persistent identifiers which can be used to consistently and accurately reference digital objects and/or content. The DOIs provide a way for the ADS resources to be cited in a similar fashion to traditional scholarly materials. More information on DOIs at the ADS can be found on our help page.

Citing this DOI

DOIs should be the last element in a citation irrespective of the format used. The DOI citation should begin with "doi:" in lowercase followed by the DOI with no spaces between the ":" and the DOI.


DOIs can also be cited as a persistent link from another Web page. This is done by appending the DOI Resolver with the DOI. This would look like:

However, if it is possible it is best to hide the URL in the href property of the <a> tag and have the link text be of the form doi:10.5284/1000332. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="">doi:10.5284/1000332</a>

A gazetteer of British Lower & Middle Palaeolithic sites

Derek A Roe

CBA Research Report No 8 (1968)


Title page of report 8

Essentially a guide to a continuously-maintained card index of sites. Over 3,000 site entries cover the British Palaeolithic sequence up to and including the Mousterian period. The entries are arranged alphabetically according to counties, and for each site the geographical location and principal sources of material (both museum collections and published references) are indicated. The finds are inventoried according to simple artefact classes such as "handaxes", "cores", "Levallois flakes", but no cultural or chronological classification is attempted. Apart from certain collections in private hands and in foreign museums, coverage of the extant material is virtually complete.
