Are you quite sure that the Sir Arthur to which you are referring is Conan
Doyle? Piltdown was a live issue in my generation in Palaeoanthrpology,
and we had to wrestle with E. A. Hooten's taking it hook, line and sinker.
But one of the lights who also gave considerable support to the "finds"
was Sir Arthur Keith. I personally doubt that Conan Doyle was enough with
it in this world to have noticed old Pilty.
