Piltdown Skull

In this photo, see the title? The Solution of the Problem. Piltdown was considered to be real proof of evolution for decades.

3rd December 1953: A reconstruction of the famous Piltdown Skull on display in the Natural History Museum, London. Accepted as evidence of the ‘missing link’ between ape and man since its discovery by Charles Dawson in 1912, the skull has recently been fluorine tested and found to be a hoax, constructed from the cranium of a man and the jawbone of an orang-utan from the Middle Ages.
