Piltdown Man article-'The most ancient inhabitant of England

'The most ancient inhabitant of England: the newly found Sussex Man.' A page from the Illustrated London News by W.P Pycraft, examining the parallels between the Piltdown Man skull and jaw, and those of others. In 1953, the find proved to be a hoax; a combination of the skull of a medieval man, the jaw of an orangutan, and chimpanzee teeth.
1912

Piltdown man reconstructed

The Piltdown man sketched by A. Forestier after Professor Keith's reconstruction, and an inset showing an alterative reconstruction after Dr. A. Smith Woodward. The discovery, made by Charles Dawson in a gravel deposit near Piltdown Common, of part of a jaw and a portion of the skull, aroused great interest. Presumed to be the remains of the oldest known inhabitant of Europe, the Piltdown man was thought to be the 'missing link', until it was found to be an elaborate hoax in the early 1950s.
