The Piltdown Man pub in Piltdown

Piltdown is a series of hamlets in East Sussex, England.[1] It is located south of Ashdown Forest.[1] It is best known for the Piltdown Man hoax where amateur archaeologist Charles Dawson claimed to have discovered evidence of the "missing link" in gravel beds near the village.[1]

Piltdown has a pub ("The Piltdown Man", after temporarily being called "The Lamb"), a golf course and a vineyard.[1][2][3] It is in the Wealden district[4] and Fletching parish.[5]
