Sieving in South Turkwel

|Sieving in South Turkwel

While Dr. Kimbel’s team was out fossil hunting among the TBI outcrops, a smaller group of students headed out with Nyete back to South Turkwel to a site where a hominin long bone fossil was previously found. The task was to sieve the top layer of surrounding outcrop in search for any additional fossil fragments.
