Welcome to a digitally enhanced philatelic experience. Dig here to search our digital philatelic reference!

The history of mankind is hotly debated and often of mythical proportion. In our modern age, we search the record of life physically embedded in the rock beneath our feet. Re-assembling these prehistoric remains provides us with a renewed wonder in life's origins and a window into past ages.

Our good fortune continues with the hobby of philately and the depiction of early man and the science of paleoanthropology on postage stamps.

This digital philatelic reference uses postal materials to take us back in time to the stone age. We'll explore the story of Neandertal man and refer to the Piltdown man hoax, England's answer to the Neandertal.
