Fossil Finding in our Backyard
On Monday half of the students went to a sieving site with Nyete, while the other half went out to the TBI outcrops to try their best to find hominin fossils.
When we got to the outcrops, the group split up to try and find the treasures buried there.

As always, the students had a lot of fun finding and uncovering the secrets in and around TBI.
