African Fossils Forum


This lower jaw belonged to a juvenile Homo erectus from the Okote member. It was found by Harrison Mutua in Area 1, close to Ileret. It was recovered from just below the Chari Tuff, a distinctive volcanic ash layer with a known date of 1.5 million years old. The lower jaw has its juvenile canines and first and second molars in place and the crowns of the adult incisors and first permanent molar are just beginning to erupt. It was while they were working on the screen for this specimen that the incident that led to the recovery of KNM-ER 992 occurred. KNM-ER 992 was found after a local tribesman fired a shot over them and they fled for cover under a thorn bush.


The specimens displayed on this site are published specimens unless otherwise indicated. The information about the artifacts on this site is of a general nature only and unless otherwise indicated, has been written either by members of the African Fossils team, the National Museums of Kenya or the Turkana Basin Institute. The printed models are not of a high enough resolution to enable accurate scientific measurements and have generated using photogrammetry and in some cases low resolution digital models have been generated using laser scanners.
