Above Runton Gap, Norfolk, 3rd October 1907.  Two names noted Gottsche and Tietze. Photograph from the Frederic William Harmer collection.

Runton is the main outcrop of the type deposit of the Cromerian warm stage  the West Runton Freshwater Bed. The latter is highly fossiliferous containing remains of plants and trees, molluscs, fish, amphibians, large and small mammals and birds.

Probably Carl Christian Gottsche and Emil Ernst August Tietze, can anyone confirm?
