Piltdown Man: The Secret Life of Charles Dawson & the World's Greatest Archaeological Hoax

by

It was not until 1953 that modern analysis conclusively revealed an ingenious hoax. The perpetrator was almost certainly the antiquarian excavator Charles Dawson who, as Miles Russell shows, was responsible for 16 other archaeological forgeries during his lifetime.
