ID: 630189933

Random House, Great Britain, 1996. Trade Paperback. Very Good. 279 pages. Covers have no creasing. Spine has minimal reading creases. Pages are lightly tanned. In 1913 an amateur fossil hunter and antiquarian named Charles Dawson found in a gravel pit in England parts of the skull of an entirely new species of pre-human. The discovery, soon known as Piltdown Man, caused headlines worldwide trumpeting the claim that the evolutionary "missing link" between ape and man had been found.Controversy quickly arose, with many scientists charging that the jaw and cranium were not related and must have come from two different creatures, an ancient man and an ancient ape. But the believers prevailed and for forty years Piltdown Man held his place - though a troubled place - in the fast-developing evolutionary scheme.In 1953, using advanced techniques for dating fossils, a team of English scientist's dramatically exposed Piltdown Man as nothing more than an amazing fraud, an ingenious but undoubted forgery.In Unraveling Piltdown, John Evangelist Walsh tells the complete story of the astonishing hoax, and convincingly exposes the true culprit. A final chapter explains in detail exactly how the entire affair was managed, offering a precise description of the planting and discovery of each of the fraudulent specimens.Filled with vivid portraits of Edwardian personalities, based strictly on documentary evidence, Unraveling Piltdown is a thoroughly absorbing detective story in which one of history's greatest frauds is finally solved.
