PILTDOWN MAN : THE SECRET LIFE OF CHARLES DAWSON & THE WORLD'S GREATEST ARCHAEOLOGICAL HOAX


By Miles Russell

(Second hand copy in very good condition)

  

Piltdown was the scene of the most daring archaeological hoax ever to be perpetrated upon the scientific community. The discovery of a human skull and ape-like jaw in this quiet Sussex village around 100 years ago was hailed by the world's press as the evolutionary 'missing link' between ape and man. In 1953 it was exposed as a fraud.

  

For the last 50 years people have speculated on the identity and possible motive of the Piltdown forger. Nowadays there seems little doubt that the culprit was Charles Dawson, Piltdown's 'discoverer'.

  

In this fascinating book the career of Charles Dawson is put under the microscope. Piltdown, it would appear, was only one in a long line of hoaxes, frauds and academic deceptions.

  

Published by Tempus. 2003. Black and white photographs and illustrations.
