Scientists Might Unveil Peking Man Fossils Soon

It seems that soon covers from the lost Peking Man fossils would be lifted as a recent report indicated that there are fair chances that the remains would be found under a parking lot in China’s northern port city of Qinhuangdao.

The report was made public in the March edition of a scientific journal, where Johannesburg’s University of the Witwatersrand, renowned South African paleontologist Lee Berger and two Chinese team members confirmed that the mystery over the fossils would soon be disclosed.

It was told that Richard M. Bowen might have seen two crates of bones at U. S. Camp Holcomb in 1947, and this is what has raised hopes that there could be a lot explored once the remains are found.

Recalling the time, Bowen iterated how he had used the wooden crates to be used as a machine gun nest to fight against tens of thousands of Communist Chinese troops. It was then the family got in touch with the South African university known for archaeological research and revealed about the same.

In response to the same, Berger of Witwatersrand's Institute of Human Evolution and co-authors Wu Liu and Xiujie Wu from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing thoroughly examined what the man had said and concluded that this is by far the most credible information they have received about the Peking Man.

Though for long, efforts were made to dig out the truth, nothing conclusive could be done about the whereabouts of the historical objects. "If these were the fossils, they may be lost to history, or they may still be buried under a few feet of asphalt in this Chinese port city”, said the team which made a visit to Qinhuangdao where the crates are suppose to be buried.

It would be worth seeing whether or not the anecdotes provided by the surviving Marine veteran could unleash about mankind in the time to come.
