Beriger’s iconoliths would fool hardly anyone today. They make the most primitive of the Chinese fake fossils look like masterpieces.

 

Thanks for the articles.

It's been years since I read it, but I recall Stephen J. Gould gives this topic interesting coverage in his book, The Lying Stones of Marrakech.
