This chapter focuses on the impact of the Sino-Japanese War on excavations at Longgushan and the fate of the Peking Man fossils. Japanese interest in the Peking Man fossils and where the Peking Man fossils went are discussed. The loss of the Peking Man fossils has generated more interest than any other topic in the history of paleoanthropology. Despite all the interest, historical research, and hypotheses, there is still not a single reliable account of a sighting of the fossils since they were packed away in 1941.

Keywords:   excavations, China, Japan, Longgushan, Sino-Japanese war, hominid fossils, Peking Man
