F.O Barlow, Professor Elliot Smith, Mr. Charles Dawson and Dr. A. Smith Woodward. The Piltdown man was found to be an elaborate hoax in the early 1950s. Date: 1915

Piltdown Man Featured Print

Piltdown Man

An illustration of 'The earliest known inhabitant of England', based upon the fragments of skull and jawbone supposedly discovered in a gravel pit at Piltdown, East Sussex, England. Considered at the time to be the 'missing link' between ape and man, some scientists doubted that it was what it was purported to be. In 1953 it was proved to be a hoax, a combination of the skull of a medieval man, the jaw of an orangutan, and chimpanzee teeth. Date: December 1912
