The recent cl aims that the London specimen of the Archaeopteryx is a hoax have been clarified and there would seem to be grounds for suspicion. The published work on the Berlin specimen shows that it has every indication of being a hoax of the sar.1e kind, that is, a modified, genuine fossil of the Compsognathus. All four of the more recent "discoveries" are shown to be nothing more than reclasslfications of genuine fossils of the same small dinosaur.
