The paper is essentially one in a series of memoires of William Pengelly, "Father of the Devonshire Association" by his daughter Hester. A self-taught geologist, Pengelly in 1858 first excavated a cave at Brixham. He accurately recorded the chronology of deposits, and found flint implements and extinct mammal remains comingled in the same layers. The Geological Society overseer, Hugh Falconer, saw the importance of these finds and later set up Evans and Prestwich to check the similar discounted reports of Boucher de Perthes in France. The result was a cascading and revolutionary new acceptance of human antiquity on both sides of the channel. Pengelly went on to supervise similar work at Kent's Cavern and Bovey Tracey, producing more pre-historic remains.
