Abstract
    In view of the renewed interest in the Cretaceous/Tertiary (K/T) boundary in the type area of the Maastrichtian Stage, a historical account is presented of the litho- and biostratigraphy of the strata below and above this boundary, as well as the position of the boundary itself. Localities exposing uppermost Maastrichtian and lowermost Palaeocene deposits are reviewed and for some of them, including the recently discovered Geulhemmerberg site, lithologic logs are provided.
