The Oldoway Skull

Abstract

I HAVE recently returned from Germany, where by the kindness of Dr Hans Reck I was enabled to examine the Oldoway skull and skeleton found by him in 1913 in what was then German East Africa—now Tanganyika Territory—and I have also fully discussed the geological and palaontological evidence as to its age with Dr. Reck himself.
