2021-6-11 · If the recent view expressed by French prehistorians, particularly Bordes, is accepted, then the archaeological pattern in England following the Great Interglacial becomes very much clearer, and the apparent absence of an Upper Acheulian in Britain, with its place taken by the early Levalloisian, ceases to be a reality, and much of the rather ambiguous Acheulian material takes its place in the Last Interglacial. The Great Interglacial finished with the Acheulian …

2016-8-8 · The British Middle Palaeolithic record can be divided between an early period of occupation (EMP) mainly from late MIS 8 to early MIS 7 characterised by Levallois technology and a late phase of occupation (LMP) in early MIS 3 generally characterised by discoidal technology with flat-butted cordate and bout coupé handaxes. This paper discusses the major sites for these periods and the evidence ...

WORCS_PAL05: To date, we lack in-situ archaeological deposits within the county. However, the fresh condition of early Middle Palaeolithic artefacts such as the Hallow handaxe (Shaw 2013), and late Glacial implements such as those from Kemerton (Jackson 2005), imply that at least some of the artefacts from the county are likely to have suffered little post-depositional disturbance.
