Spock said. "This fact supports the
theory that it was the cradle of
the human race, and we hope
sometime to find there the mias-

which did not appear in Europe
until some 10.000 years later. We
collected many stone hatchets, im
plements and decorations of this
race. We also found some excel
lent specimens of Dinosaur eggs
on the present expedition."
The chief find of the scientists
was a portion of the skull of the
largest land mammal ever discov
