The widespread interest in antiquities should assure a welcome for

Mr. R. F. Jessop's compact and informing little volume on The Archaeology of Kent (Methuen, 105. &W. Mr. Jessop has taken great pains to describe, under the suc- cessive periods from the Old Stone Age to the Anglo-Saxon Period; the more notable of the very numerous remains found in Kent. He devotes special attention to the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, and gives many details that are buried in the technical journals. Fifty plates and illustrations in the text assist the exposition which will be useful to students. It may be added that Mr. Jessop's Roman chapter includes a good account of recent discoveries at Richbomugh and at Folkestone.
