      Zhoukoudian Peking Man Site lies at the foot of the West Mountain, more tha=
      n 50 kilometers southwest of Beijing, surrounded by rolling mountains on th=
      e northwest. Green and luxuriant trees and grass set each other off, the pa=
      th wides its way into distance.

      About 5-600,000 years ago, our ancestors =A1=B0Peking Man =A1=B1 lived, gre=
      w and multiplied here=A1=AD=20

      In 1929, supported by the Paleo anthropologist, professor Pei Wenzhong, the=
      first complete skull of Peking Man was unearthed, which shocked the world =
      greatly. This discovery provided an answer to the controversy----whether Ja=
      va Man belonged to apes or human beings, which lasted more than 20 years. A=
      s a result, the history of the development of the mankind advanced 500,000 =

      For about 50 years, Zhoukoudian Peking Man Site illustrated itself in the h=
      istory of the international research into Paleo anthropolgy like a bright p=
      earl, as a result of the unremitting efforts of the scientists of several g=
      enerations in the Institute of Vetebrate Paleontolgy and Paleo anthropology=
      of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

      The present situation of Zhoukoudian Peking Man Site is not worthy of its l=
      ofty standing as a world cultural relic. The Site cannot compare a few famo=
      us cultural shrines. Even if compared with other units listed as world cult=
      ural legacies, there is a big difference, and it is even inferior to some =
      ordinary relics conservation units at home. If it still goes on like this, =
      it will not only affect the prestige of Zhoukoudian Peking Man Site in the =
      world, but also be a great loss to the international research in the histor=
      y of the development of the mankind.

      This book is an album containing more than 200 photos that taken in 1920s a=
      nd 1930s. The photos are illustrated in English and Chinese. It really reco=
      rds the digging situation in that time, and is of great historical value fo=
      r collection. =20

      The materials studied in this book come mainly from the Early Pleistocene B=
      ajiazui fauna in Qingyang County and the Late Pleistocene Loufangzi fauna i=
      n Huanxian County, Gansu Province, and partially from other localities. By =
      way of the research to the Chinese fossils of the genus Equus, some new con=
      clusions on the taxonomy, evolution, biostratigraphy, paleoclimatology, chr=
      onology and so on about the genus Equus are achieved, which gets better kno=
      wledge of the Chinese fossils of the genus Equus and develops applications =
      of mammal fossils on climatic changes. The review and revision to the Chine=
      se fossils of the genus Equus have important theoretic significance. The ex=
      ploration and discussion of climatic changes on the basis of the genus Equu=
      s have effective practical value. =20
