Abstract: Let be a homogeneous continuum and let be Euclidean -space. We prove that if is properly contained in a connected -manifold, then contains no -dimensional umbrella (i.e. a set homeomorphic to the set and and either or ). Combining this fact with an earlier result of the author we conclude that if lies in and topologically contains , then is an -manifold.
