TitleReferee's report by Arthur John Evans, on a paper 'The transition from rostro-carinate flint implements to the tongue-shaped implements of river-terrace gravels' by James Reid Moir
Date[November 1917]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Geology

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Does not agree with the evolution, but the paper gives a good series of Palaeolithic forms. Publication of the paper depends entirely on the illustrations.
