Caption: Frank Barlow and children. Frank Oswald Barlow (1880-1951) was a preparator at the Geology Department of the Natural History Musuem, London, UK. He is best known for having prepared casts and reconstructions of the Piltdown Man fossils. These fossil skull and bone fragments were claimed to have been discovered in 1912 by collector Charles Dawson, and then examined at the Natural History Museum by Arthur Smith Woodward, keeper of the Geology Department. The fossils were later (by 1953) found to be a hoax. The identity of the forger is not known, but some have included Barlow among the suspects.
