A progress report on the Rhenen industry (Central Netherlands) and its stratigraphical context

D. Stapert


In this paper a preliminary review is given of what is currently known about the stratigraphical context of the Rhenen industry. The Rhenen industry comprises Middle Palaeolithic finds from gravelly river-laid deposits in the central Netherlands. It is suggested that most of these finds date from only one interstadial of the Early Saalian, which possibly can be correlated with the Hoogeveen Interstadial. However, there are indications that part of the finds are older, perhaps dating from the Holsteinian.
