Alas, these have since been found to have been contemporary forgeries for the tourist trade along with the crystal sculls.

Surely not. As Sherlock Holmes said, once you have eliminated the probable and the improbable, then the impossible is the only alternative. Or something like that.

An amusing point in this context since Arthur Conan Doyle was likely the perpetrator of the Piltdown Man hoax that fooled scientists for ~40 years.


Was Conan Doyle the perpetrator of that hoax? There are other candidates higher on the list. More probably he was a willing victim of the hoax, just as he swallowed the Cottingley Fairies hoax.
