Title:The Pleistocene gravels of the Axe Valley, Devon
Originator:Shakesby, R. A. + Stephens, N.
Summary:Shakesby and Stephens discuss the stratigraphy of the Pleistocene deposits in the Axe Valley, with reference to exposures visited at Broom at ST328025, ST329024 and ST326002 (?misprint for 326022 - FMG). A section recorded at the Railway Pit is described. Pollen analysis from the section is described: a Hoxnian date is suggested. Two unabraded Acheulian handaxes from 'Pratt's Pit' (not located) found by the authors in 1981 are illustrated.
