Prehistoric Man In Belgium.
Prehistoric man has been traced in
several period3 in Belgium, and M.
Putot, a Belgian geogogist, has made
a novel attempt to estimate the popu
lation at different stages. In the lower
Aurignacian period five cf Belgium's
numerous caves seem to have been in
habited, their capacity being fifty to
sixty persons. In the Magdalenean
period the population was probably
sixty. Retreat of the ice permitted
leaving the shelters at the close of
this period, and the settlers on the
banks of the lakes may soon have
numbered 100 or 150. The coming of
the Cervides forests perhap3 developed
a population of 1,000, whfch may have
increased to 4,000 or 5,000 at the be
ginning of the polished stone age.
