Abstract: SOME notes on the stone implements of Burma, by W. Theobald, jun., of the Geological Survey of India, contained in the number of the Proceedings of the Asiatic Society of Bengal for July, 1869, seem worthy of notice in these pages. “The implements are curious as differing in form and type, not only from anything found in India, but from anything hitherto described from any part of Europe, though any implement yet found in India has its precise analogue in Europe.” According to Mr. Theobald, not only is the form but the material remarkable, as these Burmese implements are fashioned either of basalt or some schistose rock, quite unlike anything to be met with in the district where the implements themselves occur; a fact which he thinks points to their having been brought down from Upper Burma (where such implements are common) by the original settlers of the country.
