In the October of 1926, the news of discovering the human fossils at Zhoukoudian was formally promulgated and caused a stir in the academy at home and abroad. Followed by this was a systematic excavation in 1927 at Zhoukoudian site presided by the Chinese Geological Survey. And a human tooth, in good condition, was found out in the same year. The name "Pekingman" was proposed by Davidson, the Canadian professor of the then Peking Union Medical College, based on the above mentioned three teeth. The decades from 1927 to 1937 witnessed the continuous excavation and the newly-discovered human fossils and as a result, we know more of "Peking Man" .
