[460] So much has been written on the subject of eoliths and of the Piltdown skull, that, in the existing state of the very active controversy which is being conducted on these questions, it is, for the present, inadvisable to discuss them in these columns. Meanwhile, the attention of British archæologists may be directed to an important memoir, occupying sixty-three pages, contributed by M. M. Boule to the issue of L'Anthropologie for January-April 1915. He sums up the latter question by remarking:–"Les documents de Piltdown sont malheureusement des documents incomplets. Leur interpretation est encoure douteuse sur des points essentiels. Ils constituent, malgré tout, une découvere des plus importantes et des plus instructives."
