A gazetteer of British Lower & Middle Palaeolithic sites

Derek A Roe

CBA Research Report No 8 (1968)


Abstract

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.
