Myth about Alien
Piltdown Man of England
The Piltdown Man has been proven to be a fake and a hoax. The bone fragments, flint tools, and the bone implements were found at two other sites. The skull parts that turned out to be those of a modern man were found at one site. The jaw was from an ape skeleton found at a nearby site. Charles Dawson found the first cranial fragments of the Piltdown Man at the fossil dig site in 1908. He was only an amateur archaeologist. The fragments were given to the British Museum of Natural History where the skull was assembled. The finding was announced to the public. The media were elated at the find. This was the missing link of evolution that was so desperately needed to support the Theory of Evolution. Significant support was also given because the missing link was found in England.
