Piltdown was an archaeological site in Sussex where in 1908 and 1912, human, ape and other mammal fossils were found together. Widely accepted as a creature who had a human cranium and an ape's jaw, the Piltdown 'Man' was however exposed as a fraud in 1953. Weiner is one of the scientists who discovered the fraud, this is his account of how he came to uncover it, and he also discusses the probable authorship of one of the greatest hoaxes of our time.
