The third module on Human Evolution started early. Professor Fred Grine of Stony Brook University arrived Saturday and took students on an excursion to Lake Turkana. The Turkana Basin has revealed a wealth of human fossils, and is thus also known as “the cradle of human kind”. After a short truck ride students arrived at the breezy lake and began visual searches for human and animal fossils with Drs Meave Leakey and Fred Grine. The search paid off: a 300,000 year old hippo bone was found!
