Stony Brook University is hosting a Turkana Basin Field School information session on Wednesday, December 7th from 1:00-2:00 in the TBI Seminar Room (N503 Social & Behavioral Sciences Building). All are welcome, including parents. It is a great opportunity for students to ask questions and decide if the field school is a good fit for their academic careers.
The next field school session runs from January 23 – March 31. Spaces are still available for this session.
The Turkana Basin Field School is a full-semester field education program in anthropology, archaeology, and paleontology at Lake Turkana in northern Kenya, through Stony Brook University’s Study Abroad program. For over 40 years, the Leakey family — instructors for parts of this program –have pioneered human prehistory research in this immense and hauntingly beautiful region of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, considered by many to be the “cradle of humanity.”
