Summary

This paper makes a critical review of some of the many previous attempts at identifying and classifying tills from morainicand associated landforms and comments on the deficiencies of these as a basis for an engineering classification system. A new approach to the classification of till is suggested, which it is claimed, is suitable for both engineering and some geological purposes. This new system is then applied to a number of tills from the West Highlands of Scotland and some reported gradings of tills from other countries.
