This mandible of OH 7 was discovered in 1971 by Jonathan Leakey, in the eastern side Gorge of Olduvai. He was excavating the remains of a sabre tooth cat when this discovery was made. This fossil also comprises two pieces of the back of the skull which belonged to a large brained individual. Unfortunately there is considerable damage to the underside and distortion to the front of the mandible which has made it more difficult to assign other specimens to this type specimen. To this end there has been considerable debate about what fossils can convincingly be attributed to this species.


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.
