The Palaeolithic record of Greece remains highly fragmented and discontinuous in both space and time.

The Mousterian lithic assemblage is characterized by the use of different knapping methods, all carried out on local raw materials (i.e. different kinds of local cherts) collected in the surroundings of the site, usually from the bed of the Progno river (Arzarello, ; Arzarello and Peretto, ).The proportion of each flint type in the Mousterian levels reflects those that can currently be.

Preliminary results are presented from three seasons' work at the Lower Palaeolithic site at Barnham. The complex stratigraphy is described and a provisional interpretation given, which suggests that the archaeological deposits date to a warm phase after the Anglian (Middle Pleistocene) cold stage.
