Boucher De Perthes, Jacques

French customs official stationed at Abbeville, and amateur prehistorian; published a study in 1836 of antediluvian flint tools found in the Somme River gravels that were apparently contemporary with the bones of strange and extinct animals. In 1838, he suggested that humans might have developed over hundreds of thousands of years. Aka Boucher de Crèvecoeur de Perthes.
