The Fallacy of Anthropological Reconstructions - a short piece by Arthur Custance

- this piece is taken from his book Genesis and Early Man. Although it's somewhat outdated the book is well worth reading. Among other things, it shows why the reconstructions of so called ape men and stone age men are utterly worthless.
- I've included this short piece because I'm pretty sure I saw the lead illustration in one of my textbooks from schooldays. (This is the one where a whole family of 'ape men' is constructed out of the tooth of a wild pig :-)
