On April 8, 1988 a discussion meeting took place at Norwich with the aim of establishing correlations of the Early and Middle Pleistocene stages across the southern North Sea. On the basis of faunal, floral, and palaeoclimatic data the following correlations were considered highly probable. The Pastonian Stage of East Anglia is correlated with the Late Tiglian (TC5) Stage of the Netherlands, and the Bramertonian with the Middle Tiglian (TC1-4b). The possiblility that the British Antian and Bramertonian Stages may represent parts of a single climatic event is mentioned. The Ludhamian is probably of Early Tiglian age and the Pre-Ludhamian may equate in part with the Praetiglian Stage. Possible correlation of the Waltonian with part of the Pliocene Reuverian Stage is also suggested.
