An Anthropological Simplified Educational Story, Coloring Workbook. In 1969 Richard Leaky the anthropologist, son of the famed anthorpologists Louis and Mary Leaky explored the ancient sandstone deposits on the shore of Lake Turkana in northern Kenya where he found fossil clues that had been buried 1.75 million years ago. A subsequent foray on August 23rd 1984 of Lake Turkana, Kamoya Kimeu also a Kenyan and Richard's friend and colleague unearthed a complete skeleton of an 11 year old boy that dated 1.5 million million years ago. Nothing as complete as this discovery of human fossils had been found before and since. ;Turkana Boy,as this fossil was named would lead to other information about our distant and innovative ancestors. Turkana Boy was a member of the species Homo erectus, which means to (walk upright), and were the first humans to do so. It was also determined that that his species evolved about 7 million years prior to this discovery, and were the first to use fire, to hunt, to make tools and to run as modern humans do. Other major fossil sites of the first early human discoveries were made at sites beginning in South Africa, and later from 1959 onward in East Africa (Tanzania, Kenya, and Ehtiopia), Charles Darwin, a world famous scientist himself, had surmised much earlier without empirical evidence that, ;Africa was the cradle of humankind;). Darwin further emphasized his theory by saying It is ;Somewhat more probable that our early progenitors lived on the African continent than elsewhere.; This book is a must have educational and revealing asset to any child's reading and activity library.
