The two sites are interpreted to be Clarendonian in age [12.5 to 9.0 Ma], but may contain faunal assemblages from differing Clarendonian subages.
The striking taxonomic similarity between the two sites is not only unique but also rare, suggesting a correlative relationship within the early to medial Clarendonian (Cl1 or Cl2).

Other Miocene records include the modern species Ophisaurus ventralis from the late Barstovian of the Egeihoff Local Fauna of Nebraska (Holman 1973), the extinct species Ophisaurus canadensis from the late Barstovian of the Wood Mountain Formation of Saskatchewan, Canada (Holman 1970), and the modern species Ophisaurus attenuatus from the Clarendonian of the Wakeeney Local Fauna of Kansas (Holman 1975).

plax were described from sediments that appear to be of Clarendonian to Hemphillian age (upper Miocene; La Rivers 1953, 1966), and an undescribed Claren donian turtle is included in the Chalk Spring Locality fauna of Elko County (MacDonald and Pelletier 1958).
The revolution of the seventeenth century was, he asserted, "the transition from a Baconian to a Clarendonian constitution - Bacon and Clarendon, both men of the law and of letters, readers and writers of histories for instruction, parliament-men and counsellors of Kings." With this new publication, Wormald presents the fruit of his long consideration of the intertwined roles and significance of history, politics, and epistemology in seventeenth-century England.
The continuity of the English revolution was a continuity of tensions, ideas, and personalities which was to underpin and energize English politics into the 1690s.(1) Hence the argument that the revolution of 1688 was in fact the true restoration, a moderately conservative, almost Clarendonian settlement which established the aristocracy and provided important guarantees against further innovations by monarchy.
It is so "clothed with Eloquence," he remarks, that "Painting is glaring every where," and it "attracts one's Eye so much with the Lustre of the Picture, that we are heedless of the Likeness." And Oldmixon's view of Clarendon's labored sentence paragraphs is that they leave the reader "lost in the Circle, as much as in a Magician's; and whenever we meet with such Declaiming in plain Story, we may be sure it is intended to amuse us, as Legerdemains make Flourishes, when they are about to play Tricks." (36) But the satire on Clarendonian eloquence in Jure Divino is entirely unique in that it is supplemented by Defoe's subtle proferring of his own familiar brand of lucid journalistic prose as an alternative, ideal style of polemical writing.
McGregor started early (like Gray) and was performing from the age of seven, first with the Clarendonians. He went on to claim chart success with Big Ship, Jogging, Bobby Babylon and his huge hit, I Just Don't Want To Be Lonely.
