The Piltdown Forgery: Fiftieth Anniversary edition, with a new Introduction and Afterword by Chris Stringer

J. S. Weiner and Chris Stringer

Abstract

For decades the remains of fossils found in Piltdown, England were believed to come from a "missing link," a creature with a human cranium and an ape's jaw. Dr. Weiner shows how he discovered the truth about these remains, and went on to expose one of the world's greatest scientific frauds.
