Abstract

" At sites where dense concentrations of palaeoliths are found within river gravels, such as many of the sites in the Solent area... it can be assumed that they have not travelled far from their place of discard."(Wessex Archaeology 1992: 12)
" Despite the recognition and importance of abrasion very little work has been presented to establish both how it occurs and the rate of its occurrence. Similarly, the dispersal of artefactual material and its behaviour within a river has received little attention."(Rarding et al. 1987: 115)
