G.H.R. von Koenigswald – Archive


Gustav Heinrich Ralph von Koenigswald was the founder of the Palaeoanthropology Department at Senckenberg Research Institute. Besides his original work on human evolution he left a large amount of letters and other documents as his scientific legacy. They are curated in the archive of Koenigswald’s documents and give an insight into von Koenigswald’s work and his epoch.
