Extremely Valuable Treasures That Are Still Lost

Peking Man

A humanoid fossil dubbed the Peking Man was unearthed in 1923 in a remote cave in a village near Beijing, China, which at the time was called Peking. The Peking Man was the first Homo erectus fossil to be located by archaeologists. During Japan’s invasion of China in 1941, the fossil, along with other significant fossil discoveries, were either lost or stolen.

Theories abound as to the whereabouts of the Peking Man…he could be in a storehouse in China, with a private collector in the U.S., in a cargo box on the ocean floor, or under a parking lot in China.
