The Bibliography covers known references to sites of Pleistocene and Palaeolithic age in this area. It was first compiles by D.T. Donovan in 1954 and was added to in 1964. By 1977 these papers were out of print and were reprinted, with an additional sixty references, by Tratman and Hawkins. the most recent printed update was in 1989 by Donovan and Mansfield. The 1977 paper may be found here and the 1989 paper here.

Thanks to the work of Antonia Self, undertaken as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award, the 1954 and 1964 bibliographies are now available in searchable form through our literature search page. This should also find relevant entries from our own, later, publications. It is hoped that more volunteers will complete this task and keep it up to date in the future.
