Dr Wells is an anthropologist who at present is working on the extensive series of skeletal remains from Thetford and from Caister, in Norfolk, which will shortly be published in two volumes of the Ministry of Works Archaeological Series. He is making a fresh study of the types, and relationships of all forms of early human remains in the British Isles, and it was during the course of this investigation that his insterest in the neglected subject of cremations was aroused.
